Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plain bird found in treeless areas of the high Andes of central Peru. Plumage is sandy brown with a buffy tinge on the face and breast. The buff rump is usually only evident in flight. Distinguished from Common Miner by its unstreaked breast. Similar to some species of cinclodes, but does not have a white throat and lacks eyebrows. Feeds on the ground, and often perches up on rocks.
