Dendrocincla tyrannina


23–26·5 cm (9-10½ in)


South America: found in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia



There are 2 subspecies[1]:

  • D. t. hellmayri:
  • D. t. tyrannina:
  • Andes of Colombia to eastern Peru (Cordillera Vilcabamba); a population in La Paz, Bolivia may belong here, or may represent an undescribed subspecies


Eastern-slope of the Andes; mid-elevation montane forest (cloud-forest) at ca. 1,900 m (6,234 ft).



There is little information available. They are, however presumed to be insectivorous. They have occasionally been sighted in mixed species flocks, but usually forage alone.
