Black-winged Saltator

La Ceja, Colombia; Central Andes; 2.300 meters above sea level.


Saltator atripennis

(Black-winged Saltator / Saltador de alas negras)


The Black-winged Saltator is a fairly common resident of humid montane forest on the west slope of the Andes from southern Ecuador to northern Colombia. It is more difficult to see than some other species of saltator, perhaps due to its preference for the canopy and its avoidance of clearings.
