The grassland yellow finch (Sicalis luteola) lives up to its name – it is found in fields and other open grassland. Despite its name, it is not a finch, but is a seedeater. Males have bright yellow underparts and rump, and olive yellow upperparts. Females have dark-streaked pale brown upperparts and dull yellow underparts. It is a resident in tropical South America, from Colombia south and east to the Guianas and central Ecuador, Peru and Brazil – and found in other parts of South America. Grassland yellow finches eat seeds and insects, and are usually seen in pairs or small groups.
