|Double-collared Seedeater Sporophila
Brazilian name: coleirinho
The male Double-collared Seedeater, seen here in photos 1, 3 and 4 has a black face, upper throat and stripe across its upper breast. The rest of his underparts are greyish-white with a hint of yellow.
| The female is much less distinctive and looks like many other female seedeaters. However, the female Double-collared has a bicoloured bill with a darkish upper bill and a yellow lower bill.
They are found from Bolivia and central Brazil to central Argentina and are fairly common in semi-open areas and farmland. They migrate northwards to Amazonia during the southern winter.
