|Bertoni's Antbird Drymophila
Brazilian name: Trovoada-de-bertoni
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Bertoni's Antbird is distributed in south-east Brazil, eastern Paraguay and north-eastern Argentina. It is closely associated with bamboo stands in the Atlantic Rain Forest.
|It is very similar in looks
to Ferruginous Antbird D. ferruginea but, where they occur in the
same area, Bertoni's is found at higher elevations, typically
between 900 metres and 2,000 metres, than Ferruginous
The male, seen here in photo 1, has paler underparts and wings with a browner and slightly longer tail. The mantle has less black on it.
The female, as in photo 2, is paler and has a rufous forehead and crown unlike the female Ferruginous Antbird which has a black crown with olive streaks.
