The Brazilian Tanager, Ramphocelus bresilius, at Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. The Brazilian Tanager, Ramphocelus bresilius, is an Atlantic Forest endemic bird, restricted to the east coast of Brazil, especially recorded for areas below 800 m of altitude. Five individuals were captured and marked at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais campus, located in the city of Belo Horizonte, state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. Among them, there were two females and three males, one of them a juvenile bird with less than one year old. The record of a juvenile bird during the breeding time of the species can be a good indication of the establishment of R. bresilius in Belo Horizonte. Another two non-marked individuals were observed living in this area. This sight record and capture of the Brazilian Tanager extends its known range some 150 km westwards. Moreover, it represents a new record of the specie in a high altitude area.
