|Zimmer's Woodcreeper Dendroplex kienerii
(aka Xiphorhynchus necopinus, Xiphorhynchus kienerii)
|Anavilhanas Archipelago, Amazonas,
Zimmer's Woodcreeper is so similar to Straight-billed Woodcreeper (D. picus) that it is almost impossible to tell them apart in the field. However, we were lucky in that we had a recording of Zimmer's voice which allowed us to make a positive identification. One of the principle features (shared with the Straight-billed) is the bill being straight and ivory coloured but with a pinkish tinge.
|They are found in várzea forest along the Amazon from
the rio Tapajós westward, along the lower rio Negro and the rios Madeira and Juruá. See the distribution map at Birdlife
