|Grey Antwren (Myrmotherula menetriesii)
Brazilian name: choquinha-de-garganta-cinza
The Grey Antwren is distributed throughout most of the Amazon Basin where it is often to be found in mixed flocks in the canopy and mid-storey of humid forest.
|The male is pale grey with two black and white wing-bars. From eastern Peru to the rio Tapajós the males have a black throat patch, as seen in photo 3, but elsewhere they are entirely light grey below which explains both the English and the Brazilian names. The females, shown here in photos 1 and 2, are grey or olive-grey above with unmarked wings and bright ochre-buff below. They have very short tails even for a Myrmotherula antwren.|
