BIRD OF THE WEEK

SÃO PAULO MARSH ANTWREN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Formicivora paludicola
POPULATION: 150-700
IUCN STATUS: Critically Endangered
TREND: Unknown
HABITAT: Freshwater marshes in the state of São Paulo, southeastern Brazil

Like many other birds, including the Black Skimmer and Least Tern, the species faces continual challenges by living in proximity to a booming urban population.

The main threat faced by the São Paulo Marsh Antwren is habitat loss, particularly from sand mining, housing developments, and fish farming. Invasive species, including an introduced grass, are also destroying the bird’s already-limited habitat.
