RUFOUS-WINGED ANTSHRIKE Thamnophilus torquatus
The most poorly known of the Paraguayan Thamnophilus, this rarely reported species is typical of Cerrado habitats where it appears to be locally distributed. Males can be identified by their black cap and rufous wings, but females can be a bit more taxing, being almost Furnariid like in appearance as they creep around the Butia palm Cerrado that they inhabit.
