The Yellow-fronted Canary is distributed in Africa south of the Sahara. It is found in a variety of open habitats including open woodland, savanna, edges of cultivation and gardens. One reason for its widespread nature is its broad diet consisting of grass seeds, figs, flowers and leaves as well as insects.

It has a distinctive face pattern with a yellow forehead, cheeks and throat separated by a dark eyestripe and dark moustachial stripe.
