The anis (Crotophagidae) are a small family of gregarious birds occurring in the new world. They are part of the cuckoo order Cuculiformes and sometimes placed as a subfamily Crotophaginae within the cuckoo family Cuculidae.

Among the anis, there is considerable variation in nesting habits. One species, The greater ani C. major lays 2 or 3 eggs, while the groove-billed ani C. sulcirostris lays seven. However the smooth-billed ani C. ani will share one nest between several females, with up to 29 eggs in one nest! Incubation takes 15 days for this species. The nesting habits of the guira cuckoo are unknown.

- Smooth-billed Ani, Crotophaga ani
- Groove-billed Ani, Crotophaga sulcirostris
