Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small gray-brown minivet. Male has bright white face with a dark gray nape and a slender line through the eye. Female has a less contrasting facial pattern. Both sexes are gray above and buffy brownish-white below. Similar to Ashy Minivet, but note Brown-rumped’s brown rump and “stained” underparts. Brown-rumped is found in lowland and foothill wooded areas, often in flocks in winter. Often encountered flying overhead; listen for their bubbling metallic trills.
