Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Big, bright grosbeak of foothills and highlands; also lowlands locally in west Mexico. Found in tropical forest and edges, brushy woodlands, and shade-coffee plantations. Usually seen singly, occasionally in small groups, feeding quietly at all levels in fruiting trees. Note the very stout bill and white wing markings. Male is unmistakable: brilliant yellow overall in most of Mexico, but rich golden yellow in Chiapas and Guatemala. Female similar to female Flame-colored Tanager but bigger, with massive bill and white (not yellow) vent.
