Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large flycatcher with uniform bright cinnamon plumage. Inhabits the understory of large stands of bamboo within humid forests. The song is a series of descending musical whistles “pew-pur-pur-pur-pur.” The smaller Brownish Twistwing has a whitish belly. Rufous Casiornis is much smaller, with different proportions, and does not usually occur in humid forests.
