|Ashy-headed Greenlet (Hylophilus pectoralis)
|Pantanal, Mato Grosso, Brazil
The Greenlets are small vireos looking more like warblers and being more active when feeding.
There are a few similar looking Greenlets but the Ashy-headed Greenlet is noted for its dark red iris, its grey head and nape and the dull yellow on its breast.
|They inhabit deciduous and gallery woodland (Hylophilus from hule = Greek for woodland + philos = Greek for fond of.)
