White-bellied Seedeater (Sporophila leucoptera)

The White-bellied Seedeater is widely but disjunctly distributed across principally eastern South America. Its main range is in central and eastern Brazil, eastern Paraguay, and northeast Argentina, with isolated populations in Amazonia, at the mouth of the Amazon, and in southern Suriname. Further afield, there are records from southeastern Peru and a population in northern and eastern Bolivia, which is afforded separate taxonomic status. Throughout the species’ range, it is found in grassy areas with scattered bushes and trees, often in reasonably close proximity to water.
