Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very large wren restricted to coastal plain of Chiapas and adjacent Guatemala. Favors open and semiopen areas with hedges, scattered large trees, stone walls, and thickets; often in and around villages and in gardens of small farms. Forages from the ground to the canopy of palm trees, mainly at low to middle levels. Occurs alongside somewhat smaller, but rather similar rufous-backed form of Rufous-naped Wren. Note Giant’s plain rufous back and wings and rufous tail (Rufous-naped Wren has boldly barred wings andblackish tail). Despite large size, can be elusive, like all wrens.
