Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small antshrike of bamboo thickets in lowland rainforest. Found primarily in bamboo forests, but occasionally also in other densely vegetated thickets such as vine tangles and cane stands. Males are finely barred black-and-white. Females are reddish brown above and dull yellow below, with black barring throughout. Both sexes have a prominent crest and hook-tipped bill. Similar to Fasciated Antshrike, but separated by brown eye (not red), less heavy bill, and voice; listen for its song, a series of loud, metallic “chink” notes, given at an even pace of about three notes per second.
