Genus: Euphonia


Colors are typically dark metallic blue above and bright yellow or orange below. They are closely related to the Chlorophonias, but most of the latter have bright green coloration (three species of Euphonia were recently moved to Chlorophonia). Bills are stubby, with strongly curved culmens.


Euphonia is a genus of Neotropical birds in the finch (Fringillidae) family. Once considered tanagers due to similar coloration and habits to members of that family.
