Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce flycatcher found only at higher elevations in Colombia’s Santa Marta Mountains. Quite similar to the more widespread Streak-throated Bush-Tyrant, but can be distinguished by the indistinct and less extensive streaking on the throat and lack of cinnamon at the base of the underside of the tail; whistled calls are shorter, clearer, and descend more in pitch. Usually seen perched high in the canopy of cloud forest. Regularly encountered in the upper parts of El Dorado Nature Reserve.
