|Olivaceous Elaenia Elaenia
Brazilian name: Tuque
|Itatiaia, Rio de Janeiro,
The Olivaceous Elaenia is distributed in south-east Brazil from southern Goiás and into northern Uruguay, north-east Argentina and eastern Paraguay. It is found in forest and forest edges up to about 2,000 metres.
|It is very similar to Small
-billed Elaenia E. parvirostris but is more
olive on the greyish breast, rarely has white on the crown and
never has a third white wing-bar on the lesser coverts. Also the
white eye-ring is less pronounced.
There are recordings on xeno-canto, a distribution map from NatureServe and additional information available via Avibase. There is also a page on Wikiaves.
