Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small mosly gray finch with a yellow belly and contrasting pale bluish bill. Rather uncommon and generally restricted to scrub habitats and taller secondary forests on weathered, sandy soils. Sexes are similar. Like other euphonias, feeds on fruit, often in pairs, sometimes traveling long distances between food sources. Most frequently seen perched on high bare branches; may follow mixed-species flocks. Combination of mostly gray plumage and lack of yellow on forehead distinguishes this species from other euphonias. One vocalization is a jumble of notes preceded by a sharp, inflected note; other sounds similar to those of other euphonias.
