Yellow-billed Blue Finch

Rhopospina caerulescens (Wied-Neuwied, M 1830)

The blue finch or yellow-billed blue finch is a species of small bird. Although it was long classified in the bunting family Emberizidae, or the cardinal family Cardinalidae, more recent molecular studies have shown it fits comfortably in the Thraupini tribe within the family Thraupidae.
