Tanagers Galore in Ecuador!|Outdoors My Home Window

3 February 2023, Fly Ecuador: Day 6, birding in Mindo as well as the NW Andes

I utilized to believe hummingbirds ( Trochilidae) were one of the most various bird family members on our WINGS journey in Ecuador till I took a look at the tanagers.

Tanagers ( Thraupidae) are the 2nd biggest family members of birds as well as a Neotropical specialized. Almost 40% of Thraupidae

varieties stay in Ecuador; 20% of the family members gets on our trip list. Chart based upon Thraupidae details, an post on Ecuadoran tanagers as well as the

WINGS list Thraupidae subscription is frequently in change as DNA examinations relocate birds in as well as out of the family members annually. Some varieties names no more match their family members There’s a tanager called a “cardinal” as well as participants of the Cardinal family members Cardinalidae called “tanagers.” To make issues even worse some family members aren’t called “tanagers” in any way, consisting of honeycreepers, conebills, flowerpiercers as well as

saltators To bring some order out of the mayhem I took a look at vibrant [photo] Thraupidae
