Family Cardinalidae

Family Cardinalidae
The family Cardinaliade includes a select group of tanagers and grosbeaks. They are robust birds with strong bills. They are typically associated with open woodland and interior forest. Except for Carmiol’s Tanagers, the sexes have distinctive appearances. Some of the Tanagers within the family Cardinalidae forage in the forest canopy and join mixed foraging flocks, others forage in the understory and join understory flocks. Yet others live in open
 woodlands and forage in pairs or individually. As with the tanagers within this family, some species of grosbeaks forage in interior forest and other in forest edges, open woodlands and scrub. They are monogamous and defend territories during the breeding season. There are six genera and 12 species within the family Cardinalidae known to occur in Peru.
