Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very small bird of humid tropical forest and edge. Favors vine tangles at mid-upper levels, where moves actively, holding its tail cocked and flopping it from side to side. Appearance is distinctive, with buffy face, very long thin bill, and fairly long tail with white tips. Easily overlooked, but rising and falling trilled call reveals its presence.
