White-throated Earthcreeper is a cactus/scrub specialist and inhabits a narrow elevational band that supports this vegetation community.

The first targeted species, White-throated Earthcreeper, can be found near Chiguata. We had a long search in an area where in December 2004 I'd found a nest hole and two pairs of the bird.
