  1. Tanager

    The tanagers comprise the bird family Thraupidae, in the order Passeriformes. The family has an American distribution. There were traditionally about 240 species of tanagers, but the taxonomic treatment of this family's members is currently in a state of flux. As more of these birds are studied using modern molecular techniques it is expected that some genera may be relocated elsewhere. Already species in the genera Euphonia and Chlorophonia, which were once considered part of the tanager family, are now treated as members of Fringillidae, in their own subfamily. Likewise the genera Piranga, Chlorothraupis, and Habia appear to be members of the Cardinal family, and have been reassigned to that family by the AOU.
