Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small ground-dwelling flycatcher of lowland rainforest. Very unusual appearance for a flycatcher, looking more like a tiny thrush or an antbird as it struts around the ground with its body held upright. Likes to walk on logs and tree roots in mature rainforest, making short flights up to understory vegetation to catch insects. Dull brown above and white below with broad black breast streaks.Listen for its short song with a distinctive “up-down” pattern, a whistled “wheeu, pew.”
