POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, with a long, often fanned brown tail tipped with white and a cream-colored undertail. Mostly brown with a slightly darker head, a limited white throat, and two buffy wingbars. Prefers undisturbed primary forest up to 700 meters of elevation. Similar to Rufous Fantail, but not as red, and lacks the white belly and black chest band. Separated from Gray Fantail by being much darker below, with broader white tail tips and no black chest band. Song is an upward-spiraling trill. Common call is a soft “chit.”
