|Eye-ringed Tody-tyrant Hemitriccus orbitatus
|REGUA, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The Eye-ringed Tody-tyrant is a Brazilian endemic from south-east Brazil - Espírito Santo to Rio Grande do Sul. It is found in the lower and middle growth of the Atlantic Rain Forest and secondary growth where it tends to perch fairly vertically and sally upwards to glean insect prey from the undersides of leaves..
|Upperparts are olive with a prominent white eye-ring and supraloral spot. The wings have broad white edging to the tertials. Underparts are yellowish with olive streaks on the throat. The upper mandible of the bill is grey while the lower is pale flesh coloured.
Its voice is a rapid, squeaky trill as you can hear on xeno-canto.
