Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large wren with a long tail. Note the black-and-white streaks on the face contrasting with the brown crown, cinnamon upperparts, and buff belly. The wings and tail have dark bars. Found in the thick vine-tangled understory of humid forest and forest edges, where it usually noisy, but difficult to see. The song, usually delivered as a duet, is melodic and far carrying; the call is a harsh “tje-tje.”
