Grassland Yellow-Finch

Sicalis luteola (Sparrman, 1789)

The Grassland Yellow Finch (Sicalis luteola) is a small passerine bird. Despite its name, it is not a finch, but is a seedeater. These were formerly united with the buntings and American sparrows in the Emberizidae, but are now known to be tanagers. Source: Wikipedia
