July 8, 2017 – Black-cheeked Gnateater (Conopophaga melanops)

These gnateaters are found along the coast of eastern Brazil in the Atlantic Forest. Foraging near and on the ground, they pick small arthropods from vegetation and leaf litter. Socially monogamous and territorial, they usually nest from October to November or December. Their trilled call is often the best way to locate them.
