We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Great Pampa Finch is very common at Reserva Don Luis. They share a similar habitat with the Strange-tailed Tyrant and some of the Sporophila species of tall grass associated with water.
It has a distinctive pleasant call and is confiding.
The bird is strikingly marked with an olivacious back and strongly streaked greenish wings. The underparts are pale grey with a grey head and a bright orange bill.
The female is similar but the juvenile looks quite different with a yellow supercilium, cinnamon rump and a dark bill
