Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Adorably round and tailless small ground-dweller; combination of bright white eyering, deep cinnamon-brown head, and yellow throat is unique and unmistakable. Breeds in montane and hill forests, where it prefers densely vegetated wet or damp areas, often in the vicinity of streams and gullies. Winters in scrubby forest and forest edge growth in lower foothills. Forages actively on the ground in deep cover, seldom venturing out into the open. Gives a loud, fluid-sounding “chee-leu-chee-wit,” as well as various sharp and high-pitched calls.
