Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A colorful, boldly marked bunting. Note the black-and-white facial pattern, the brown back and rump, and the yellow underparts. Found in broadleaf woodland, moist savanna, and cultivated areas. Similar to Golden-breasted Bunting, but separated by the narrower black stripes on the face, the yellow belly, and the lack of white wingbars. Somewhat similar to Cabanis’s Bunting, but separated by the brown back and the mostly white rather than black cheek patch. The song is a quick warbling jumble, ending on a higher trill.
