Yellow Faced Grassquit

The Yellow Faced Grassquit (Tiaris olivaceus) is a passerine bird from the Central American tropics and surrounding regions. It was formerly allied with the American sparrows and placed in Emberizidae; actually, however, it is one of the tholospizan “finches” which are specialized tanagers (Thraupidae). As such, it is closely related to the famous Darwin’s finches. The attached images where taken in Altos del Maria, Panama.
