We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
Buff-browed Foliage Gleaner
We saw this species for the first time in our nearest wood in March 2013 and since then have seen it in our largest wood, Monte Grande.
It is part of the family Furnariidae and is reasonably common in our area.
It is fairly confident in nature and is best located by the sound of it scratching in the undergrowth, where it spends most of its time.
It gives the overall impression of being olive green with white splashes on its underparts and the pale long supercilium is very noticeable. Upperparts are olive brown and it has a wide spiny tail which is rufous in colour. The bill gives the impression of being slightly upturned an the throat is pale.
