Chestnut-bellied Seedeater (Sporophila castaneiventris) Plain-colored Seedeater (Catamenia inornata) Plumbeous Sierra-Finch (Phrygilus unicolor) Ash-breasted Sierra-Finch (Phrygilus plebejus) Band-tailed Sierra-Finch (Phrygilus alaudinus) Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola) Slaty Finch (Haplospiza rustica) - Some of the bamboo was seeding in Cajanuma and Tapichalaca, so this normally rare bird was actually quite common for a change.
