Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A distinctive medium-sized wren found from central Colombia to northwestern Peru. Occurs from sea level to around 1,600 m, locally higher. Warm brown above with a white eyebrow, streaked black-and-white face, and black spotting on breast. Tail and undertail coverts have strong barring. Pairs are found in the dense understory of scrubby woodland and edges. Listen for the loud sweet song phrases and the distinctive call, like running your finger up a comb.
