Yellow euphonia of lowland rainforest. Males are rich golden-yellow with a light gray nape and prominent white lores; females are similar but with gray underparts. Compared to similar female euphonias, look for the pale patch around the bill and yellow undertail coverts; never shows an orange wash as in other species. Prefers open forest habitats, like young rainforest and forest clearings, but also found sometimes within mature rainforest. Gives a variety of calls, including a short series of high whistles and chips, and a smooth “dwick” call.
