BLANCAS-CALVA, Epifanio; BLANCAS-HERNANDEZ, Jean Cristian; CASTRO-TORREBLANCA, Marisol  and  CANO-NAVA, Gabriel Antonio. The Blue-gray Tanager (Thraupis episcopus) in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Huitzil [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.2, pp.232-237. ISSN 1870-7459.

We recorded the Blue-gray Tanager (Thraupis episcopus) on the southeastern coastal plain of the state of Guerrero, Mexico, in urban areas with cover of scattered trees of native and introduced species. The current range known for this taxon comprises lowlands of eastern Mexico, from south-central Nuevo Leon to the Yucatan peninsula, including eastern Oaxaca and the Pacific slope on the coastal plain of Chiapas. However, there are no published previous records of the species in Guerrero. Possibly T. episcopus is a species that has expanded its range in episodes of active dispersal.

Keywords : Neotropical affinity; distributional range; Guerrero avifauna; Thraupidae.
