Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive puffbird; look for the orange cheeks and face that contrast with the streaky gray head. Occurs in the lower levels of humid and seasonally flooded forests, occasionally interacting with mixed-species flocks and attending army-ant swarms. Typically sits motionless for long periods. The typical song is a very thin descending trill that is easily missed, resembling the song of Semicollared Puffbird.
