Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive-looking rufous bird, heavily streaked with a bright cinnamon tail. Note the orange chin patch. Found in humid forest with dense vine tangles, where it forages by gleaning from the understory to the subcanopy and often accompanies mixed-species flocks. The song is two clear notes flowed by a rattle. The superficially similar but larger Pale-browed Treehunter lacks the orange chin and has a more robust bill.
