French: Bruant des sierras
Spanish: Chingolo Serrano
Other common names: Bailey’s Sparrow
Taxonomy: Xenospiza baileyi Bangs, 1931, Bolaños, Jalisco, Mexico.
Sometimes suggested as being close to Ammodramus, and genus sometimes subsumed in latter; song and limited molecular work, however, suggest close affinity with Melospiza, and may be better placed within that genus. Monotypic.
Distribution: C Mexico, where now restricted to two isolated localities: Distrito Federal (centred around La Cima and Milpa Alta, near Mexico City); and S Durango (Ejido Ojo de Agua–El Cazador).
