Piranga rubra (MGT)   : breeds in the USA and Mexico and overwinters in a large area from Central America to the western Amazon. In South America this species seems to be more abundant along lower slopes of the Andes ( Hilty, 2011). It is an uncommon winter visitor in Manaus/ AM and there are records for RR and PA in December ( Stotz et al., 1992; Silva, 2011c). Museum and photographic records confirm its presence in RR, AP, AM and PA between October and March (WikiAves, 2016; MPEG), but there are occasional records for AM in May and July (WikiAves, 2016).

Pheucticus aureoventris (MGT)   : occurs mainly in the Andes from Venezuela to Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and southwestern Brazil ( Sick, 1997). Breeding records are restricted to Colombia from November to January and to Argentina in December ( Brewer & de Juana, 2017). It is only recorded in MT, MS and RO in Brazil during winter from May to September (WikiAves, 2016), as well as in AM and GO in July and August ( Serpa et al., 2014; MPEG 73473 [AM, 2011, August]).
