Pale-headed Brush Finch

It is threatened by habitat loss and the nest-parasitic Shiny Cowbird. Most of its tiny known range, estimated at only 1 km² by BirdLife International, is within the Yunguilla reserve, which, following the rediscovery of this species in 1998, was set up by the Jocotoco Foundation. Following intensive management, including the removal of cowbirds, the population of the Pale-headed Brush-finch is currently increasing. Further increase, however, may be limited by a lack of suitable habitat.

The Pale-headed Brush Finch is classified as Critically Endangered (CR), facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.

The number of Pale-headed Brush Finch breeding pairs at Yunguilla Reserve has increased by 80% in seven years. Nobody had seen the critically endangered Pale-headed Brush Finch since 1969 and the bird was thought to be possibly extinct, when in November 1998 ornithologist Niels Krabbe and colleagues found a small colony of about ten pairs at Yunguilla, Azuay Province, Ecuador.
