Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Attractive small puffbird of lowland rainforest. White below, reddish brown above, with a black mask and single black breast band. As with most puffbirds, can be difficult to spot as it sits motionless on a perch for long periods of time; usually perches fairly low, in the under and midstory in dense vegetation. Prefers forest edges and other areas of dense secondary growth, especially around water.
