This list of potentially threatened finch species has been sourced primarily from the outstanding publication Finches and Sparrows by Clement,Harris and Davis . The species were listed either as scarce and/or lacking valuable data from the wild. Information on Buntings and Cardinals was sourced via various print publications and the Internet. This list is constantly evolving so RFCG would welcome all comments and updates.
