Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small, nondescript, streaky gray-brown seedeater with a lemon-yellow rump, white tail tips, and a variable dark throat (more obvious in the male). Paris and flocks frequent thorn scrub, broadleaf woodland, scrubby patches in upland grassland, cultivation, and gardens, where they forage on the ground and in small shrubs and grass. The song is a complex collection of whistles and warbles, and calls include a simpler melodic one- or two-note “soooe-sweee.” The similar Reichenow’s Seedeater and Yellow-rumped Serin differ from Black-throated Canary by lacking a dark patch on the chin and throat.
