Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large pipit-like bird with a golden-yellow throat and eyebrow emphasized by a circular broad black necklace and pumpkin-buff-colored belly and vent. The upperparts are subdued plain gray-brown and the outer tail corners are white, a key feature in flight. Pairs occupy upland grassland, dambos (seasonally flooded wetlands), and grassy savanna, especially close to water. It often perches up singing a strongly whistled “tu-wee-ti-chuuu” and variations thereof. The larger Yellow-throated Longclaw differs from Fülleborn's Longclaw by having a brighter yellow belly and vent, streakier head and neck, and distinct black streaking on the breast below the black necklace.
