Description

Description

Identification:  The Chestnut-Throated Seedeater (Sporophila telasco) is Neotropical songbird in the family Thraupidae. One local name in Chile is “corbatita” meaning little tie, as if it wears a little chestnut tie on a white shirt. The natural habitats of the chestnut-throated seedeater are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, subtropical or tropical moist shrubland, swamps, sandy shores, and heavily degraded former forest along the pacific coast and montane uplands of Western South America, primarily Ecuador, Peru and Chile. Males possess a rich chestnut patch on the throat in breeding season, while females share a similar color pattern, but lack the throat patch, with a lighter bill, but moult into drab plumage outside of the breeding season. This occurs because the cost of predator attracting, colorful plumage is no longer worth taking when breeding activities are completed.  These songbirds are among the smallest members of the tanager family at approximately 4.0 inches in length, and possess powerful bills to harvest grass seeds.

Geography: South America; Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

Song/Call:  Click to listen to the Chestnut-throated Seedeater

Size/Weight:  4" / 8.4 to 10.9 g

Lifespan: 5 to 7 years

Sexing: Easy to sex when in breeding plumage but difficult when not as the males and females look similar.

DNA Testing 

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: No information founds but in watching the Chestnut-throated seedeater, it appears to be a sweet and docile bird. 

Breeding:  This seedeater breeds in the rainy season, where there is one, taking advantage of new grass and its seeds as a food source for the young.

Diet: Classic Finch Seed, Mineral Grit, Dried Egg Food, Cuttlefish Bone
