Sooty-headed wren

The sooty-headed wren (Pheugopedius spadix) is a species of bird in the family Troglodytidae.

It is found in Colombia and Panama. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Almost endemic to Colombia, but for a narrow extension of its distribution into easternmost Panama, the Sooty-headed Wren is sometimes considered to be conspecific with the allopatric Black-throated Wren (Pheugopedius atrogularis), which is confined to Central America. The Sooty-headed Wren can scarcely be confused with any other species in range, it having a black head and throat, and unmarked chestnut breast and flanks. The upperparts are entirely rufous, although the tail is barred darker. This is a generally secretive species, usually found in pairs, and typically observed low above the ground. It sometimes follows army ant swarms in search of insects fleeing the ants.
