|Amazonian Barred Woodcreeper Dendrocolaptes certhia
(aka Concolor Woodcreeper Dendrocolaptes certhia concolor)
|Carajás, Pará, Brazil
The Amazonian Barred Woodcreeper is distributed throughout the Amazon and most of the Orinoco Basins. See the distribution map at Birdlife International.
It is found mainly in tall terra firme forest such as that found at Carajás.
|This sub-species D. c. concolor has virtually no barring which is such a prominent feature of the nominate
and most other sub-species to the extent that it has been treated by some authorities as a separate species. However, because of vocal and
morphological similarities it is now generally treated as a weakly barred sub-species of Amazonian Barred Woodcreeper Dendrocolaptes certhia.
It also has a redder bill than the nominate.
Note that the Amazonian Barred Woodcreeper is distributed in a total of 5 sub-species throughout the Amazon and most of the Orinoco Basins.
