Chilean name: Canastero de quebradas
| Putre, Chile
The Canyon Canastero is distributed in the Andes from north-west Peru to northern Chile. It is found in arid pre-puna scrub at between 2,400 and 3,700 metres.
|It is brown above with a greyish head and a whitish
supercilium that broadens behind the eye. The wings and lower flanks are
rufous as is the tail and it is the most rufous-looking of the canasteros
in Chile. Underparts are pale grey with an orange or whitish throat
There are recordings and a distribution map on xeno-canto. Note that the map does not quite stretch to the north of Chile where this species was only recently found around the Putre area.
