|Chestnut-bellied Seedeater (Sporophila castaneiventris)|
|Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil
The Chestnut-bellied Seedeater's range is the Amazon Basin although it is missing from parts of the rio Negro area. It is probably the most common seedeater in the region and is found in grassy areas, clearings, near marshes and in gardens.
|The male, as in the photo, is bluish grey above, including on the rump, and the grey extends to its flanks where it borders the chestnut belly. The female is generally olive brown like most female Sporophila but has a dark bill and is generally smaller.|
