Today's Bird: Black-Capped Warbling Finch

Today's bird is the Black-Capped Warbling Finch.  It's one of those South American birds that was excessively named.  At least this one's descriptive--it's a Finch that warbles with a black cap.  In going through my notes, it took me a little while to figure out which bird this was as there was a whole collection of black-capped birds we saw on the trip. There were even different types of Warbling Finches; this is one of many.  At least the photo was date stamped, which helped me narrow it down.  I took this picture on June 29, 2012 near a small town called Saipina in Bolivia.
