  1. Hi Ferdy, even though it looks fairly unusual, recent genetic studies have justified lumping it with Sporophila. Would you mind amending the name when you have time? Posted 10 days ago
    1. Sure thing, done! Posted 10 days ago
      1. Cool! And at some point, we should probably do a cleanup of the genus Tangara as well. I was pissed off about all the new genera that they came up with a few years ago but at this point I don't think it will change back. Posted 10 days ago
        1. Not a problem, will do that somewhere later this week. Posted 10 days ago
          1. Terrific.

            Black-capped Tanager = Stilpnia heinei
            Blue-necked Tanager = Stilpnia cyanicollis
            Burnished-buff Tanager = Stilpnia cayana
            Golden-hooded Tanager = Stilpnia larvata
            Masked Tanager = Stilpnia nigrocincta
            Scrub Tanager = Stilpnia vitriolina
            Silver-backed Tanager = Stilpnia viridicollis (Also called Silvery Tanager)

            Rufous-throated Tanager = Ixothraupis rufigula
            Speckled Tanager = Ixothraupis guttata
            Spotted Tanager = Ixothraupis punctata

            Golden-naped Tanager = Chalcothraupis ruficervix

            Gray-and-gold Tanager = Poecilostreptus palmeri

            Blue-capped Tanager = Sporathraupis cyanocephala (currently under Thraupis)

              Black-headed Hemispingus = Pseudospingus verticalis
              Drab Hemispingus = Pseudospingus xanthophthalmus

              Black-eared Hemispingus = Sphenopsis melanotis
              Oleaginous Hemispingus = Sphenopsis frontalis

              Superciliaried Hemispingus = Thlypopsis ruficeps

              Chestnut-bellied Seed-Finch = Sporophila angolensis
              Nicaraguan Seed-Finch = Sporophila nuttingi

                  1. In the process I stole a species intro from you lol. One of the species had 2 species records (synonyms) split between you and me. They are now merged but my photo was posted first. Posted 9 days ago
                    1. Hahahaha fair play! Which one was it? Posted 9 days ago
