Perijá brush finch
|Perijá brush finch|
(Phelps & Gilliard, 1940)
Arremon torquatus perijanus
It is found in the undergrowth of humid forest, especially near edges, at altitudes of 300 to 1,200 metres (980 to 3,940 ft) in the Serranía del Perijá between north-east Colombia and north-west Venezuela.
The Perijá brush finch was often treated as a subspecies of the stripe-headed brush finch (A. torquatus), but was determined a distinct species, on the basis of differences in vocalization, plumage, and genetics. The SACC split the group in 2010.
