The family of Spndalises has only been considered an independent family since 2013; they had previously been seen as representatives of the Tanagers. They occur in the Caribbean and on the island of Cozumel off the coast of Mexico. They are resident birds. They reach body lengths of 13 cm to 18 cm. They have short, powerful beaks and nine primary wing feathers. Their habitat is very diverse, they are primarily fruit-eaters and feed mainly on berries, but occasionally also on insects and other invertebrates. Their nests are cup-shaped.
