Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small and plain gray like most other Scytalopus tapaculos, but look for slightly paler belly and fairly bright tawny flanks without barring. Restricted to the eastern Andes of Colombia, from just south of Bogotá to the Venezuelan border. Acts like a mouse, scurrying around on or near the ground within montane forest and scrubby areas from around 2,000 to 3,300 m. Listen for fast, froglike trill.
