Emberizidae As with several other passerine families, the taxonomic treatment of this family's members is currently in a state of flux. Many genera in South and Central America are, in fact, more closely related to several different tanager clades, and at least one tanager genus ("Chlorospingus") may belong here in the Emberizidae.
Emberizidae Emberizids are small birds, typically around 15 cm in length, with finch-like bills and nine primary feathers. The family ranges in size from the "Sporophila" seedeaters, the smaller species of which are about 10 cm and weigh 9–10 g, to Abert's towhee, at , and the shorter-tailed, but chunkier canyon towhee, at . They live in a variety of habitats, including woodland, brush, marsh, and grassland. The Old World species tend to have brown-streaked plumage, although some New World species can be very brightly coloured. Many species have distinctive head patterns.
Emberizidae Their diet consists mainly of seeds, but may be supplemented with insects, especially when feeding their young.
Emberizidae It was hypothesized that the family Emberizidae may have originated in South America and spread first into North America before crossing into eastern Asia and continuing to move west. This would explain the comparative paucity of emberizid species in Europe and Africa compared to the Americas. However, a DNA sequence-based study of passerines concluded emberizids spread from North to South America.
Emberizidae The habits of emberizids are similar to those of finches, with which they sometimes used to be grouped. Older sources may place some emberizids in the Fringillidae family, and the common names of some emberizids still refer to them as finches. With a few exceptions, emberizids build cup-shaped nests from grasses and other plant fibres, and are monogamous.
Emberizidae The rest of the traditional Emberizidae are listed below. While they do not form a natural group, most appear to be closer to various tanager genera, and for the largest part they are often known collectively as tanager-finches.
Emberizidae In Europe, most species are called buntings. In North America, most of the species in this family are known as (American) sparrows, but these birds are not closely related to the (Old World) sparrows, in the family Passeridae. The family also includes the North American birds known as juncos and towhees.
Emberizidae The relationships of these birds with other groups within the huge nine-primaried oscine assemblage are at this point largely unresolved. Indeed, relationships within the Emberizidae as defined here are uncertain with the possibility that each of the three main groups may not be all that closely related.
Emberizidae The results of a recent biochemical study suggest that "Melophus" and "Latoucheornis" may be related to various members of "Emberiza" and perhaps should be subsumed within that genus.
Emberizidae The following are a group of apparently closely related neotropical sparrows known as the brush finches.
