BIRD OF THE WEEK:

WHITE-BROWED ANTPITTA

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Hylopezus ochroleucus
POPULATION: Unknown
TREND: Probably declining based on habitat loss
HABITAT: Humid lowland and dry forests in northeast Brazil

The White-browed Antpitta belongs to a family of 50 or so Central and South American bird species known for their elusiveness. Once thought to be the same species as the Speckle-breasted Antpitta, the White-browed can be differentiated by the white supercilium or “eyebrow” for which it’s named.
