Genus Nemosia


Cherry-throated Tanager - The Cherry-throated Tanager, Nemosia rourei, is a medium-sized passerine bird. This critically endangered tanager is an endemic to handful of localities in the Atlantic Forest in EspĂ­rito Santo, Brazil, though the possibility that it occurs in adjacent parts of Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro cannot be discounted. It has a striking, essentially black-white-red plumage; a photo is online in the abstract of Bauer et al. 1998.
