Hylopezus dives

Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Secretive and very difficult to see. Distinctive antpitta shape: very plump with hardly any tail, very long sturdy legs. Distinguished from other antpittas by rich rufous flanks with darker streaking on breast. Hops on the ground in dense forest, edges, and tangles; sometimes perches off the ground to sing (but still always concealed). Much more easily heard than seen; listen for its fast rising series of whistles.
