The black-throated grosbeak (Saltator fuliginosus) is a species of songbird. Traditionally placed in the cardinal family (Cardinalidae), it actually seems to be closer to the tanagers (Thraupidae) – see the genus article for details.
It is found in humid Atlantic Forest in far northeastern Argentina (Misiones), eastern and southeastern Brazil, and far eastern Paraguay. It is overall very dark grey, and the male has a black face, throat and chest. Adults of both genders have a red bill (can fade in captivity), but this is yellowish-dusky in juveniles. It closely resembles the slate-colored grosbeak, which has a white throat.
