|Santa Marta Bush-tyrant Myiotheretes pernix
Colombian name: Atrapamoscas de Santa Marta
|Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Magdalena, Colombia
The Santa Marta Bush-tyrant is endemic to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia where it is found on the edges of montane forest and woodland at between 2,100 and 2,900 metres. It is classified as Endangered by BirdLife International given its very small range around the San Lorenzo Ridge and the threats to the habitat up there.
|It is very similar to the Streak-throated Bush-tyrant M. striaticollis but is smaller, darker below and with a darkish undertail (cinnamon on the Streak-throated.)|
