      28 January 2010, El Valle, Cocle Province, Panama

      This skulker visited the feeders only occasionally and briefly. When
      venturing into the open they twitch their wings and jerk their tails
      nervously making them a challenge to photograph. Males and females are
      alike.

      Two races are recognized, both occurring in Panama. This is nominate
      cassinii which ranges over most of Panama into Columbia. It is slightly
      brighter and lighter than the western subspecies M. c. costaricensis which
      replaces cassinii in Costa Rica and extreme western Panama.

      Genetic data indicate that the genus Mitrospingus is not a true tanager and
      does not appear to be closely related to any other family group. For this
      reason the genus is currently placed "Incertae Sedis" in between the
      Tanagers (Thraupidae) and the Sparrows (Emberizidae), along with a
      hodgepodge of other species such as Bush-Tanagers, Galapagos Finches and
      Saltators whose relationships remain unclear.
