Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very small, handsome finch of foothills and highlands. Occurs in a wide range of habitats, from humid pine-oak forests to brushy hedgerows in farmland, the common denominator being mistletoe. Usually in pairs or small groups, in or near mistletoe clumps, from which it sings persistently, but can be hard to spot. Plumage distinctive: male deep rusty below with black throat and turquoise-blue hood; female greenish overall with turquoise-blue hood and rusty forehead. Formerly known as Blue-hooded Euphonia.
