Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Commonest miner in the mountains of central Chile and adjacent Argentina. Favors open rocky areas, bogs, and roadsides. Often seen in pairs, walking with waddling gait and pumping its tail like most miners. At times found with flocks of sierra-finches and other seed-eating birds. Rather compact and dumpy. Best identified by broad pale eyebrow and warm peachy wash on flanks. In flight note the bright rusty band in the wings and on the base of the tail. Loud buzzy song given from prominent rock and in flight.
