|Rufous-naped Ground-tyrant Muscisaxicola rufivertex
Chilean name: Dormilona de nuca rojiza
|Laguna Miñiques, Chile
The Rufous-naped Ground-tyrant is distributed from Peru through Bolivia and western Argentina to Chile as far south as Colchagua. It is normally found in the Andes at between 2,200 and 4,500 metres but some races are altitudinal migrants and these are found at 300 to 1,000 metres during the asutral winter.
|Its most notable feature is the well-demarcated rufous patch on nape. It is a pale blue-grey above with contrasting dark brown wings and tail. Underparts are very pale grey to white. The bill is relatively long with a downward tip.|
