|White-lored Tyrannulet (Ornithion inerme)
|São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Amazonas, Brazil
The White-lored Tyrannulet is distributed in the Amazon Basin with a disjunct population in eastern Brazil. It is found in various types of forest and woodland, normally near water and almost always in the canopy though it can come lower at forest edges as in these photos.
|As a result of its preference for the canopy it is usually located by voice but visually can be identified by two main features; firstly, the white supercilium which meet over the bill and, in combination with the faint white eyering, give the bird a spectacled look; secondly, the two white wing-bars which are formed, uniquely for a tyrannulet, by spots.|
