apple. The lofty Terebinthacece, with their walnut-like fruit, are inhabited by swarms of squirrels, as well as birds remarkable for their gay-colored plumage. Among the most common in those districts are the red-bellied tanagra (Tanagra ignivcntris, Orb.) and the fire-colored pyranga (Phcenisoma bivittata, Tsch.). Individual birds belonging to the Penelope family (P. rufiventris and adspersa. Tsch.) and the green pepper-eater (Pieroglossus cceruleo-cinctus, Tsch.) are found in the lower forests.
