Canário-da-Terra

The Canário-da-terra (Sicalis flaveola brasiliense), is a Tanager from South America. The male is bright yellow with an orange crown. The females are more confusing as they can sometimes be just a duller version of the male,  olive-brown with heavy dark streaks. They nest in cavities and make use of sites such as abandoned João-de-barro Rufous Hornero (Furnarius rufus) nests, bamboo branches and under house roofs – this species is tolerant of human proximity, appearing at suburban areas.
