Small antpitta found in montane forest in the Andes from northern Ecuador to Bolivia. Typical antpitta shape: plump with short tail and long legs. Plain warm tawny or rufous below and duller browner above. Look for conspicuous white eyering that is much wider behind the eye. Similar to Slate-crowned Antpitta, but crown is not contrasting gray like Slate-crowned and the eyering is white, not buffy. Occurs from around 1,750 to 3,350 m. Singles or pairs are shy and difficult to see in the understory; usually perched a meter or two above the ground. Often found around patches of bamboo. Listen for fast series of piping whistles that drops off at the end.
