Genus Cissopis


Magpie Tanager - It is widespread in humid tropical and subtropical woodland, plantations, second growth, and parks in South America east of the Andes. It is absent from drier regions and most of north-eastern Brazil. In densely forested regions, it mainly occurs in relatively open sections . In such regions it is spreading with deforestation, which opens up the habitat. It is largely restricted to lowlands, but occurs up to an altitude of 2000 m on the east Andean slopes. It is common throughout most of its range, but rarer in the Guianas.
