Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, brownish bird that inhabits grassland and dense scrub at high elevations in the mountains. Note orange spot on throat and chestnut wing patches and tail edges. Combination of dark blotches on back and unstreaked underparts distinguishes it from other similar canasteros. Forages on the ground, where it is hard to see, but occasionally ascends to a more open perch to rest or sing. Song is a high pitched, rapid trill.
