Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Chunky rufous bird with obvious puffy white or tan cheeks. Also note diffuse spotting on breast and rather long rufous tail. Pointed bill. Cheek patch is enough to distinguish from other similar rufous birds; Streaked Tuftedcheek barely overlaps in range and is usually found at higher elevations. Found singly or in pairs, usually following mixed-species flocks. Hops around large limbs in the middle and upper levels of forests, probing into mossy tangles and epiphytes.
