Default Stripe-headed Brush Finch

The Stripe-headed Brush Finch (Arremon torquatus), also known as the Stripe-headed Brush-finch, is a species of bird in the Emberizidae family. It is found in north-western Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and northern and western Venezuela. It is generally common in forest and dense second growth, mainly at altitudes of 2,000 to 3,000 metres (6,600 to 9,800 ft), but locally it occurs far lower.


Until recently, the Stripe-headed Brush Finch was placed in the genus Buarremon.

The Stripe-headed Brush Finch often includes the Black-headed Brush-finch (A. atricapillus) as a subspecies, but the distributions of the two approach each other closely in Colombia with no evidence of intergradation. When split, the taxon costaricensis of Costa Rica and western Panama has been treated as a monotypic species (the Grey-striped Brush-finch, A. costaricensis), a subspecies of the Stripe-headed Brush-finch, or a subspecies of the Black-headed Brush-finch, with most recent authorities preferring the last treatment. Even with these as separate species, considerable racial variation exists in the Stripe-headed Brush-finch. Based on ecology, morphology, song, and molecular work it has recently been suggested that it should be split into six species (in addition to before mentioned A. atricapillus and A. costaricensis).Approximately from south to north these are:

Arremon torquatus (with subspecies fimbriatus and borelli) in the Andes from north-western Argentina to far southern Peru.
Arremon assimilis (with subspecies larensis, nigrifrons and poliophrys) in the Andes from Peru to Venezuela.
Arremon perijanus (monotypic) in the Perijá Mountains on the border of Colombia and Venezuela.
Arremon basilicus (monotypic) in the Santa Marta Mountains in Colombia.
Arremon phaeopleurus (monotypic) in the western Venezuelan Coastal Range.
Arremon phygas (monotypic) in the eastern Venezuelan Coastal Range.
