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
The large Elaenia is relatively common inhabitant of the Ibera marshes. It is similar to several other flycatchers and difficult to diferenciate other than by its call. It has a soft explosive whistle.
It measures around 16cm, has a brown head with a short crest and a white throat. Upper breast is grey and lower belly is yellow. The tail is long and the bill dark. It also has pale edgings to the coverts.
