BIRD OF THE WEEK

CEARÁ GNATEATER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Conopophaga cearae
POPULATION: Unknown
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Upland evergreen forest; endemic to Brazil

The stub-tailed, long-legged Ceará Gnateater was once considered a subspecies of the more widespread Rufous Gnateater. Differences in voice and morphology recently led to the bird being split into a separate species. Like the endangered Grey-breasted Parakeet, the Ceará Gnateater is only found in isolated mountain forests of northeastern Brazil.

The stocky little bird is sometimes called chupa-dente (literally, spitter) in Portuguese, after its harsh calls. Still considered common, the species occurs in a very restricted range, so is vulnerable to habitat loss
