December 8, 2015 – White-headed Marsh Tyrant (Arundinicola leucocephala)

These tyrant flycatchers are found in freshwater marshland of tropical South America. They catch flying insects in the air, or pick them from surfaces, hunting from their perches in reeds and shrubs. Building unkempt spherical nests with side entrances from grass and feathers, both parents incubate the eggs.
