Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large hermit with an extremely long curved bill. Note the dark cheek bordered by pale eyebrow and mustache, and the elongated white central tail feathers. Fairly dull overall, with bronzy back and buffy or grayish belly. Occurs in lowlands across much of northern South America, typically below 1,000 m. Fairly common within terra firme forest where it stays low, quickly zipping around flower patches in the understory.
