Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small, extremely short-tailed, long-legged, long-billed terrestrial brown songbird with a pale buffy eyebrow and a pale underside. Juvenile is more richly colored above, with a duller eyebrow and underparts. A secretive, ground-dwelling bird of forest floor and thickets in lowlands and hills, usually found singly or in pairs. No other small, nearly tailless bird occurs in its limited range on Timor and Babar islands, making it easy to identify. Song is a barely audible, extremely high-pitched rising “tzeee.”
