Elaenia parvirostris

View in taxonomic table

We often see the Small-billed Elaenia along the edges of the woods at Reserva Don Luis.  It is a small bird at about 13cm and has distinctive wing bands of a cinnamon colour.  The eye-ring is quite noticeable and, as per its name, the bill is small.  It has a hidden white crown that is not often seen.
