An uncommon and elegant tiny flycatcher of forest undergrowth in temperate forests of Colombia and south in the Andes to Bolivia. Found in all three Andean ranges of Colombia between 2200-3600m.

A very shy and difficult bird to encounter, the bird always stays low and hidden at 1-3m height. This image was taken on a stunted forest along the Old Road to Los Nevados at 3,000m.
