Tanagers

Order: Passeriformes
Family: Thraupidae

Species on page (6 species in 5 genera)

Many species that are now in the tanager family were formerly classified as finches (Fringillidae).
Many continue to have the word finch in their common names.
Thraupidae includes hundreds of species - the exact number subject to much debate.
They are among the most speciose families, including up to 4% of all birds by some estimates.
Though numerous, this radiation is endemic to the Americas.
