Orange-fronted Yellow-Finch

Sicalis columbiana Cabanis, 1851

The Orange-fronted Yellow Finch (Sicalis columbiana) is a species of South American bird in the Emberizidae family. It has a highly disjunct distribution with S. c. columbiana found in Colombia and Venezuela, S. c. goeldii along the Amazon River in Brazil, and S. c. goeldii in east-central Brazil. It is found in semi-open areas, typically near water and sometimes near humans. The male closely resembles the Saffron Finch, but it is smaller, has a more contrasting orange front, and dusky lores. The female is overall olive-gray with whitish underparts, and yellow to the wings and tail. Source: Wikipedia
