Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Common foliage-gleaner of dense vegetation and forest edges. Reddish brown with a pale yellow-orange eye and a straight, heavy bill. Favors forest edges, young forests, streams, and rivers. Extremely secretive and difficult to see as it forages in dense vegetation and vine tangles singly or in pairs. Plain reddish brown coloration and light eye help distinguish it from other foliage-gleaners. Song is often heard around dawn, a descending trill about a second long.
