Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small streaked woodcreeper of lowland rainforest. Found in a variety of forested habitats; often one of the most common woodcreepers within its range. Reddish brown overall with tan streaking on the head and breast, and a long and fairly slender bill. Hard to distinguish from the similar Ocellated Woodcreeper except by voice. Listen for a long, fast rising and falling series of whistles.
