White-winged Diuca-Finch Idiopsar speculifer



Distinguishing Characteristics

The White-winged Diuca Finch is a large terrestrial finch. It is named for an obscure white section of the otherwise black outer primaries. Apart from the white wings, this gray species has a white belly, a white throat and a white arc below the eye. From a distance the white is often not visible, but the short bill and front heavy body lend to a distinctive shape.
