Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Reddish-brown bird with a distinctive upturned bill. Found almost exclusively in bamboo thickets, but occasionally also in dense viny areas. Forages singly or in pairs in the under- and midstory, using its bill to pry open holes in dead bamboo to find insects. Its song is a deep accelerating rattle “tick-ti-tr-trrrrrrrrrrrrr” that crescendos.
