SPECIES INFO

The Carrizal Seedeater, Amaurospiza carrizalensis, is a recently discovered species of seedeater. These are birds in the family Cardinalidae, long placed with the American sparrows in the Emberizidae.

This bird lived on Isla Carrizal in the Caura River, in northern Venezuela.

The males are gray with blue flecks, and the females are yellow.

The species has been described based on three specimens found in 2001; its only known habitat "? spiny bamboo on that island "? has been cleared to allow construction of a dam, but researchers are hopeful of finding the birds living elsewhere.
