Taxonomy

The genus Phacellodomus was introduced in 1853 by the German naturalist Ludwig Reichenbach to accommodate the rufous-fronted thornbird. [1] [2] The genus name combines the Ancient Greek phakellos meaning "bundle of twigs" and domos meaning "house". [3]

Species

The genus contains ten species: [4]

Tit-spinetail Genus of birds

Tit-spinetails are small passerine birds of the genus Leptasthenura, belonging to the ovenbird family Furnariidae. They are found in South America, particularly the southern and Andean parts of the continent. They are somewhat similar to birds of the tit family in their shape and feeding behaviour, hence the first part of their name. The "spinetail" part of their name refers to their long, pointed tail feathers. Tit-spinetails have short rounded wings, short pointed bills and are mainly brown in colour. Their nests are built in holes or in the old nests of other birds.

Orange-eyed thornbird Species of bird

The orange-eyed thornbird is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae. It is endemic to the Atlantic Forest in eastern Brazil. It formerly included P. ferrugineigula as a subspecies, but under the common name red-eyed thornbird. After the two were split, that English name was confusingly used for both species briefly, although it only really is fitting for P. ferrugineigula. To avoid this confusion, P. ferrugineigula is now generally called the orange-breasted thornbird. Unlike that species, the orange-eyed thornbird has conspicuously bright orange eyes, far less rufous below and on the crown, and the entire tail rufous. The two also have different voices and are locally sympatric in São Paulo without evidence of interbreeding.
