Large-headed Flatbill

The Large-headed Flatbill is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Large-headed Flatbill (Ramphotrigon megaceph- ala) is spottily distributed through Amazonia, the coastal mountains of southeastern Brazil, and the for- ests of eastern Paraguay and northeastern Argentina. It is apparently restricted to dense thickets of bam- boo (pers. obs.) in all three regions. In winter in southeastern So Paulo, Brazil (Serra do Paranapia- cabo), it descends from bamboo zones to dense forest edges without bamboo at the bases of the serras (E. O. Willis pers. comm.). More

The large-headed flatbill (Ramphotrigon megacephalum) was seen and recorded on tape – at least two pairs of the species. This species is never found except in areas of dense Guadua sp. bamboo, as it specializes on this plant. This recording extends the known range of this species by 900 km and is the first record of the large-headed flatbill for the Guinanas. More

Puffbird, Chestnut-winged Hookbill, and Large-headed Flatbill remained heard only, but more luck was had with a responsive Dusky-cheeked Foliage-gleaner. In forest edge at the end of the trail we found Manu and Gray Antbirds together. The open areas along the old logging roads on this fazenda make for excellent canopy viewing, and we had scope views of a number of nice birds here including eight Paradise Jacamars, Black-girdled Barbet, White-browed Purpletuft, Purple-throated Cotinga, and a preening Tooth-billed Wren.

Large-headed Flatbill (seen this time), and a nervous Dusky-tailed Flatbill which refused to show for everyone (we caught up with it at Cristalino later). The track has good sightlines, and we saw Spix´s Guan, Red-fan Parrot, Lettered and Red-necked Aracari, Osprey, and Amazonian Oropendola along the first 200 metres. Mixed flocks were diverse, and highlights included Black-girdled Barbet, Rufous-tailed Xenops, Tooth-billed Wren and Slaty-capped Shrike-Vireo. More
