Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, colorful flycatcher found in lowland and foothill rainforest. Ranges primarily in eastern Ecuador, but also reaches adjacent areas of southern Colombia and northern Peru. Black, white, gold, and chestnut plumage pattern is unique in range. Told from Common Tody-Flycatcher by yellow back and golden wing stripe. In southern Peru it is replaced by the similar Black-backed Tody-Flycatcher. Typically found in pairs that hide in tangles at forest edge or in overgrown clearings. Call is a short, dry trill, often given repeatedly by both members of the pair.
