The White-crested Tyrannulet is a winter visitor to Paraguay when it can be quite numerous, even in urban areas. They are restless, active feeders, rarely still for more than a second, taking a variety of tiny insects both in flight and gleaned from foliage. It is part of a recently discovered cryptic species complex with another, as yet unnamed, but extremely similar species.FIGURE 1 - Adult, PROCOSARA, PN San Rafael (Sylvia Qu June 2008 - ECOSARA Biodiversity Database).
