Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large ovenbird. Found in almost any open habitat including urban areas. Rufous above and buff below with a contrasting white throat, faint eyebrow, and a dark rufous tail. Song is a loud and rhythmic burst of “kweep” notes often delivered as a duet with wings flapping wildly. Builds remarkable mud nests on trees, buildings, and other human structures.
