BUFF-FRONTED FOLIAGE-GLEANER Philydor rufum
Raucous canopy acrobats, Buff-fronted Foliage-gleaners are rarely still for long, creeping along vines, hanging upside down and occasionally uttering their earsplitting chattery calls. This species is to be separated with care from the Ochre-breasted Foliage-gleaner, the most obvious difference being, unsurprisingly, the buff "front" of this species!
