Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This stunning little bird is quite common in cloud forest in the subtropical and temperate zones in the Andes from Venezuela to Bolivia. It is bright rufous above with a white eyebrow and throat and bold white spotting on underparts. Could be confused with Montane Woodcreeper, but note much shorter bill. Singles or pairs forage with mixed-species flocks, usually hitching along mossy branches in the middle to upper levels of forest. Occurs from around 2,000–3,500 m.
