also been suggested that the Tanager Finch, Oreothraupis arremonops, is part of Atlapetes. At present there is no good comprehensive molecular phylogeny for Atlapetes, so I have not made significant changes to the linear order here. As you can see, it's been possible to put together reasonable species trees for most of the sparrow tribes. More

Tanager Finch crossed quickly in front of us and then disappeared. Our first Yellow-eared Parrots were seen flying in the distance at the top of the hill. We traversed a farm field to see an active nest box of this rare bird on the side of a tall Wax Palm. A group of three birds were tending the box (a pair and a “helper”) and we watched them perched and then flying from palm to palm marveling at excellent flight views. More
