Genus Cnipodectes


Brownish Flycatcher - It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Peru. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

Rufous Twistwing - It is associated with bamboo growing in humid forested regions in south-eastern Peru, northern Bolivia and far western Brazil . Most of its range is remote. Nevertheless, it has recently been estimated that the total population is below 10,000 individuals, leading to recommendations of treating it as vulnerable, and this was followed by BirdLife International in 2009. As suggested by its common name, its primaries are modified as in the related, but smaller, Brownish Twistwing. Unlike the Brownish Twistwing, the Rufous Twistwing is bright rufous overall.
