Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, widespread woodcreeper in lowland forest and forest edge. Buff throat is often difficult to see. More easily identified by its reddish brown coloration, buffy streaking on head and breast, and heavy, relatively long bill. Often found around human habitations with forest edge, but also common in more mature forest. Very vocal, heard more often than seen; listen for a long rising-falling series of rich “chew” notes. The most common woodcreeper over most of its range.
