Red-cowled Cardinal Paroaria dominicana


Priorities for Future Research

All sources agree that this species of tanager is not endangered and that their population is not only growing but spreading to southern parts of Brazil. However, more information is needed on the reproductive aspects of this tanager as well as its relation to other similar species that fall into the same genus of Paroaria.
