(aka Thrush-like Woodcreeper, Plain Woodcreeper) Note that some authorities such as Howard & Moore and the SACC treat this taxon as a sub-species of Dendrocincla fuliginosa Plain-brown Woodcreeper.
Brazilian name: Arapaçu-liso
The Plain-winged Woodcreeper is found in south-east Brazil from southern Bahia and into Misiones, Argentina.
It inhabits forest and secondary woodland
where it is usually seen in lower and middle levels. It often
follows army ant swarms.
The genus Dendrocincla is considered to be the most primitive of the woodcreepers. The tail feathers have a less rigid shaft and smaller spiny tips than others. This is possibly related to the fact that they catch much of their prey by sallying rather than foraging on tree trunks.
