A common antpitta found in the Eastern & Central Andes of Colombia between 2200 – 4000m, usually above 3000m. Present in Colombia & south into Peru.

The easiest of all antpittas, it has a bold behavior sometimes bumping into birders along trails.               It exposes itself in the open paramo as it feeds on floor insects. Sometimes it hops into the branches of shrubs or even fence posts, where it displays its singing repertoire.

Can be seen along the trails of the Visitor´s Center at Los Nevados National Park.
