Cochabamba Mountain Finch

The Cochabamba Mountain-finch is an endangered species of bird that is endemic to the Cochabamba Department of central Bolivia. Together with the closely related Tucuman Mountain-finch, it was formerly placed in the genus Poospiza.

The Cochabamba Mountain Finch is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Cochabamba Mountain Finch is endemic to Bolivia. It is considered Endangered of Extinction because of its small distribution and small, fragmented population. Most of the species’ native habitat has been destroyed, but recently it has been found to use shrubbery vegetation associated with community agricultural land. The aim of our project is to develop community action plans to reduce threats to the Cochabamba Mountain Finch associated with its use of cropland. More
