Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized antpitta. Typical antpitta shape: plump and short-tailed with long legs, like a grapefruit on stilts. Plain brownish overall; darker olive above and tawny below with a white eyering. Uncommon in the foothills and lower subtropics from Venezuela to Peru. Occurs on the ground in wet montane forest from around 700–1,800 m. Exceptionally difficult to see. Listen for its song: a fairly slow series of hollow whistles that gets stronger in the middle and then trails off.
