Family Tityridae

Family Tityridae - masked tityra
Species within the famiy Tityridae were formerly spread over the families Tyrannidae, Pipridae and Cotingidaeis. The existence of the family Tityridae (although simply treated as a clade) was first proposed in 1989 based on the morphology of several syringeal and skeletal features. The existence of this family has later been confirmed by
multiple studies. The family Tityridae includes Tityras, Schiffornis, Mourners, Xenopsaris, and Becards. They are small to medium-sized birds. Most have relatively large heads. They are found in forest and woodland in the Neotropics. There are seven genera and 22 species within the Tityridae known to occur in Peru. Photo: Masked Tityra ©James Diedrick.
