|Short-tailed Antthrush Chamaeza campanisona Brazilian name: Tovaca-campainha|
|Serra de Baturité,
The Short-tailed Antthrush is distributed in eastern and southern Brazil from Bahia to Santa Catarina with disjunct populations in Alagoas and Ceará. It is also found in adjacent areas of Paraguay and Argentina as well as in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.
|It inhabits a variety of
forest types including secondary woodland and is usually in areas
with a fairly open understorey.
The birds in Ceará, as pictured here, are different from other sub-species in having an entirely pale bill (usually only the lower mandible is pale) and dark lores rather than a white loral spot.
