||It is found in semi-open areas such as clearings and, when I lived in the Cauca Valley, Colombia, it was very common in our garden so I was
delighted to see it again in the garden of a good friend when I visited him in 2012 (photos 2 and 3).
It has a dark bill and is otherwise lacking in obvious field marks. The Amazonian sub-species T. i. debilis (photo 1) has a whitish patch on the upper chest
and fades to white on the belly and crissum below a grey-brown breast. The nominate race, seen here in photos 2 and 3, is browner.
