Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Impressively large antpitta of Andean cloud forest in Ecuador and southern Colombia. Oddly proportioned, with short tail, long legs, and stout bill. Underparts are cinnamon or buff with dense black barring; also note gray crown and brown back. Compared to Undulated Antpitta, it is larger and lacks gray back and white throat. Generally quite rare but regularly visits worm feeders in some locations. Mostly terrestrial but may perch quite high while singing. Song is a long, rising trill that gets steadily louder.
