January 19, 2017 – Austral Negrito, Patagonian Negrito, Rufous-backed Negrito, or Southern Rufous-backed Negrito (Lessonia rufa)
These tyrant flycatchers are found in southern South America, breeding in Chile and Argentina and migrating north for the winter. They eat a variety of small insects, including mites, springtails, and flies, running along the ground and occasionally capturing prey in short bursts of flight. Females lay their eggs in nests built from twigs and roots on the ground or on cliff ledges. Males leave for migration earlier than females, which migrate with their chicks.
