Branco Antbird (Cercomacra carbonaria) and Hoary-throated Spinetail (Synallaxis kollari). Both species are vulnerable and found only in a limited area in northernmost portion of the Amazon. When we started this study little was known about these birds. We now know that the Rio Branco Antbird is less threatened than previously thought. The Hoary-throated Spinetail, on the other hand, has little habitat left and is more threatened than we thought. We also call attention to the importance of indigenous reserves and the conservation of these birds. More
