|Greyish Mourner Rhytipterna
Brazilian name: vissiá
Greyish Mourner is distributed in the Amazon and Orinoco Basins (sub-species R. s. frederici) with a disjunct population in south-east Brazil from Alagoas to São Paulo (the nominate sub-species R. s. simplex). The first three photos are of the nominate sub-species while the last 2 are of R. s. frederici.
It is found in the middle and upper levels of humid forest where it picks its insect prey off leaves and branches.
It is plain grey though slightly paler on the underparts where a tinge of yellow-green can sometimes be seen on the belly and crissum. The iris is dark red to reddish-brown.
|It looks very similar to the larger Screaming Piha L. vociferans though its voice is very different.
The first three photos (of the same individual) show distinct rufous edging to the wing and tail feathers which indicate that this bird is either immature or a female.
|There are recordings and a distribution map on xeno-canto.|
