Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A mostly yellow warbler of Andean cloud forest; it has dark head stripes and a thin orange crown patch that can be hard to see in the field. There are two groups which have different ranges and songs, and in the future they may be considered separate species. The “Choco” group is found in western Colombia and northwestern Ecuador; it sings a rising, buzzy metallic trill. The “Golden-bellied” group ranges in Peru and Bolivia and gives a series of clear, mellow whistles; it appears similar to Two-banded Warbler but lacks the broken eyering and has a yellower eyebrow.
