Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A gregarious small seed-eating bird of pine forests and forest openings that also visits agricultural areas near dry scrubby forests. The male is unique in appearance with green upperparts, yellow underparts, a black head, and a thick pale bill. Females of this species resemble female and nonbreeding Village Weavers, but the Village Weavers are substantially larger, have a distinct pale eyebrow, a dark bill and pink legs. Calls include a “jut-jut,” a shrill and buzzy “zzhhreeeee,” and a buzzy insect-like “zzzzzzzzzt” that is upward inflected.
