|Dark-faced Ground-tyrant (Muscisaxicola maclovianus)
Chilean name: Dormilona tontita
The Dark-faced Ground-tyrant breeds in southern Chile and southern Argentina but migrates northwards in April as far as northern Peru, north-east Argentina and Uruguay. It returns to its breeding grounds in October.
|It breeds in grassland near forest edges and Andean slopes but is usually below 1500 metres. It is the darkest ground-tyrant and shows little contrast between its back and its wings and tail. It has a blackish face with no supercilium and in good light you can see the dark brown tone to the head.|
