Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This grosbeaklike bird is olive above and pale below with a variable amount of dark streaking on the underparts. Also look for a short white eyebrow and a hefty dark bill. Beware, some subspecies are nearly unstreaked below. Fairly widespread but usually uncommon from Costa Rica east to Venezuela and south to Peru. Occurs in the lowlands up to around 1,600 m, mostly in scrubby forest edge and second growth. Listen for sweet whistled song, sometimes with a burry tone.
