Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large seedeater with a big, bulging bill. Dark brown above and white below with heavily streaked underparts. Also note the white marks around the eye. Rare and local in montane habitats including forest, forest edge, and lush scrub. Somewhat similar to Yellow-browed Seedeater, but larger and heavier-billed, without any yellow in the plumage. The song is a fast-paced mix of whistled and rattling notes.
