Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Antshrikes have proportionally large, flat heads and large, hooked bills, and they often cock their tails down. Fasciated Antshrike is widespread through Central and South America. Male is finely barred black-and-white all over with a more solid black cap. Female similar but with buffier ground color and rufous cap. Most often seen in pairs, and often moves higher than other antshrike species, at middle levels or even the canopy of thick edges and tangles. Can be difficult to get a clear view. Listen for series of mournful rising whistled notes.
