Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized antpitta restricted to cloud forest along the east slope of the Andes in northern Peru. Adult is rich cinnamon brown with a white belly and throat (sometimes tinged yellow), a gray crown, and a bluish eye-ring. The rarely-seen juvenile is much darker with buff barring. The species inhabits forest understory and usually stays on the ground, where it is hard to see. Some lodges in the area have feeding stations for it, making it much easier to find. Song is a series of three short notes; it can be imitated by proficient whistlers.
