Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly distinctive small flycatcher found in the Andes from western Venezuela to northwest Peru. Rather lanky and long-tailed with obvious rufous wash on face and breast and two rufous wingbars. Otherwise olive above with pale yellow belly. Uncommon in the lower levels of cloud forest, from around 1,500-2,400m, where singles or pairs are usually found following mixed-species flocks. Listen for loud squeaky call.
