Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Thrush-sized, plump bird of open habitats, especially near water. Particularly fond of disturbed areas, often around human settlements, clearings, and roadsides. Builds an impressive dome-shaped mud nest. Rich rufous above and pale tan below, often with a darker breast. Also note white throat and eyebrow, dark reddish-brown eye. Most often seen strutting confidently on the ground, and also perches high in a tree or atop a building to sing: listen for a long, loud, descending series of explosive piping whistles. Occurs in Colombia and Venezuela, most common in northern lowlands but also south into central Andean valleys.
