Whiskered wren

The whiskered wren (Pheugopedius mystacalis) is a species of bird in the family Troglodytidae.

It is found in Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and heavily degraded former forest.

The Whiskered Wren is a skulking species of the northern Andes from Venezuela south to Ecuador.  It prefers forest undergrowth and thickets from 800-2400 meters in elevation in the Andes, unlike the very closely related Moustached Wren of Amazonian lowlands.  Whiskered Wren is large, gray-headed with black and white facial stripes, with rufous on the back, wings, and black-barred tail, and plain white underparts.  The species is most easily detected in its dense habitat by its loud, ringing song, which is more gurgling than than that of the Moustached Wren.
