Long-tailed, sparrow-like bird found in humid habitats along the Andes. Has a dark gray face and upperparts, with dusky yellowish underparts and a rusty red crown. Told apart from other brushfinches in range by its combination of yellow belly and red crown; more brightly colored than the similar Olive Finch, which has an olive-yellow back. Forages near the ground in montane forest and scrub within a wide elevational range. Listen for its simple whistled song and high, thin call notes.
