Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small songbird that sometimes skulks deep in shrubbery, where a sharp “dink” call is the only indication of its presence, but emerges to forage in the open to forage more than some buntings. Adult male has grayish head, yellow belly, and rich chestnut wings. Female is drab brown and extensively streaked overall; facial pattern similar to other buntings in the region, but plumage lacks bright coloration of others.
