Tanager Accounts

In the lab, we have  published several accounts on tanagers for Neotropical Birds Online, produced by Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology.  Neotropical Birds Online is an authoritative, online resource for life histories of Neotropical birds. Most of the following accounts on tanagers were written in collaboration with students in Biology 524, Ornithology:
