Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A very distinctive brushfinch endemic to the Santa Marta Mountains of Colombia. It has a simple yet very attractive plumage pattern with a black head, white ear, yellow underparts, and gray back. Nothing similar occurs together with it. Common, bold, and easy to see, inhabiting cloud forest as well as clearings with just scattered trees. It’s often the first endemic encountered by birders visiting this isolated mountain range.
