     Cardinals are a family of passerine birds found in North and South America. The South American cardinals within the genusParoaria are spaced within another relatives, the Thraupidae previously spaced in Emberizidae.
    These are robust, seed-eating birds with potent bills. The relatives ranges within size from the 12-cm, 11.5-gram Orange-breasted Bunting to the 25-cm, 85-gram Black-headed Saltator. They are typically related with open woodland. The sexes always possess distinctive appearances; the relatives are dubbed for the red plumage (colored cardinal like the color of a Catholic cardinal's vestments) of males of the type species, the Northern Cardinal.
    The "buntings" within this relatives are sometimes generically known as "tropical buntings" (though not everybody exist within the tropics) or "North American buntings" (though there are otherwise buntings within North America) towards discriminate them from the true buntings. Likewise the grosbeaks in this relatives are sometimes branded "cardinal-grosbeaks" towards discriminate them from otherwise grosbeaks. The dub "cardinal-grosbeak" can also appeal towards these relatives as a whole.
