Dull-colored Grassquit (Asemospiza obscura)

Another group of small birds that are often overlooked (or even often completely ignored!) are the grassquits, part of the tanager bird family. This Dull-colored Grassquit (Asemospiza obscura) is clearly not helped in this regard by it’s name! Why it couldn’t be called ‘Brown Grassquit’ I don’t know….photo taken in the Santa Marta mountains of northern Colombia.
