Black Throated Finch Recovery Team

Report a Sighting

Observing a Black-throated Finch in the wild is now a rare experience. All sightings of the bird are very valuable because they inform researchers about the distribution and health of finch populations. This means that we can target scarce resources more effectively, produce more up-to-date information and better understand the bird.  
There are two sub-species of the Black-throated Finch. The northern form (Poephila cincta atropygialis) has a black rump and the southern form (Poephila cincta cincta) has a white rump. The southern sub-species is ENDANGERED under federal legislation. Look carefully for rump colour when observing Black-throated Finches.   
Report all of your sightings to contribute to better understanding of this beautiful bird.
