The Grey-chested Greenlet is distributed in Amazonian Brazil and southern Venezuela. It is found in the canopy and borders of forest and secondary woodland where it tends to forage in viny tangles. This bird was either in deep foliage or silhouetted against the sky so I had to play around with the exposure quite a bit and did not quite get it right.

However, you should be able to make out the whitish iris and the dull grey underparts with greenish yellow on the sides of the chest. The crown and nape are grey while the forehead and remaining upperparts are olive.
