Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized, short-tailed antbird with a bright red eye. Has slate gray head and breast, black throat, brown belly and upperparts, and whitish dotted wings. Female is similar but has a white barred throat and buffy dots in the wings. No overlap with the similar Dull-mantled or Esmeraldas Antbirds. Often found in pairs, typically in rocky shaded ravines along streams in foothills. Often quite vocal; song a strong, relatively high-pitched series of notes “fee-feet-feet-FEET-feteu-feek!”, and call is a harsh “FEeuh.”
