Family: Cotingidae


Cotingas, bellbirds, becards, fruiteaters, and fruitcrows.


Cotingidae is a family in the Order Passeriformes.
Phibalura is placed here too. As there is some doubt about its taxonomic placement it is sometimes also put in Tyranni Incertae Sedis until further information is found.
Calyptura was placed here in the past and is now moved to Tyrannidae.
