Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A rather plain thornbird with a long tail and a dark eye. Note the rufous forehead that contrasts with an olive-brown back and buff underparts. Found in open areas with scattered trees and savannas; avoids the forest interior. Tends to be very vocal, often singing in a duet. Look for its enormous stick nests usually located in isolated trees where they hang suspended at the end of branches.
