Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A very streaky yellow-green canary with a chunky pale pinkish bill. The male has a blackish face and chin and a yellow eyebrow. The female is grayer on the face. Pairs and small groups frequent forest edges, thickets, gardens, and the edges of cultivation. The jumbled song and call are high-pitched and varied. Similar looking citrils occur farther north in Africa.
