The African Citril Finch originates in Ethiopia, Eritrea to Western Kenya. The African Citril Finch is closely related to the Western and Southern Citril, to which it was formerly considered conspecific. From the Western Uganda the African Citril Finch can show a black face and bright yellow supercilium (plumage feature found on the heads of some bird species) or none at all. The upperparts of the African Citril are green, dark-streaked or blackish, underparts of males are bright yellow or dull yellowish-green with rather heavy streaking on breast and flanks. The song of the African Citril is loud and Canary or Linnet-like, but sweeter in tone, with a clean piping whistle of three or four notes 'tweet-ti-tu'.
