Hoffmann's Woodcreeper

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

The Hoffmann's Woodcreeper is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Morphologically, the little-known Hoffmann's Woodcreeper is unique within the genus, having a long, slim bill and unusual plumage patterns. Although Raikow grouped Hoffmann's with the two barred woodcreepers, its voice, foraging behaviour and biogeography support Willis's assertion that it is more closely related to the Black-banded and Planalto Woodcreepers. Taxonomic confusion in the Dendrocolaptidae is perhaps best exemplified by the largest genus in the family, Xiphorhynchus. More
