Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small long-tailed bird of thickets and undergrowth. Light gray with reddish brown wings and tail. Light throat without any black helps distinguish it from similar spinetails. Found around forest edges, as well as around gardens and human dwellings. The most common spinetail over most of its range; often heard singing throughout the day, a repeated “pew … put WEET!”
