White-throated Spadebill (Patinho)

Tiny bird, around 10 cm tall.


It is common in the understory of secondary forests and high mountain rain forests, sometimes in tangles of vines and bamboo in the forest edge. This bird lives alone and apparently does not participate in mixed flocks. On account of the small size and living in dense vegetation, easily passes unnoticed.
