The White-chinned Woodcreeper is found in the Amazon Basin. There are several subspecies involved and maybe even two sperate species.

It is uniform rufous-brown on the upperparts with its wings and tail more chestnut in colour. It has a small white throat patch which is just visible in the photo

This bird was one of a pair that we saw very close to where there had been an army ant swarm which is typical behaviour for this bird. It was also fairly close to the ground

There are illustrations in Ridgely & Tudor, Volume 2, Plate 12; and in Hilty & Brown, Plate 23.
