Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, orangish hermit from the Andean foothills. Light orange with a grayish-green back and a black mask typical of hermits. Warmer orange than similar hermits like Great-billed and White-bearded; larger and more slender-bodied than White-browed and Reddish Hermits; bolder facial pattern and slightly more curved bill than the similar Needle-billed Hermit, which replaces this species in the lowlands and does not often overlap in range.
