Commonly called the black-throated finch, this species has been facing population decline due to human encroachment on their habitat.

Due to their small range, any loss of habitat greatly affects the species. Conservation efforts have only slowed the decline thus far. They form in small flocks and are social birds with pairs greeting each other.
