(Russet-crowned Warbler / Arañero Coronado)
The russet-crowned warbler (Myiothlypis coronata) is found in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and heavily degraded former forest.
The russet-crowned warbler is approximately 14 cm in length. Among its distinguishing markings are the rust-orange crown, for which it is named, black crown-stripes and eye-line and otherwise gray face. Its breast is often pale yellow. The species exhibits no obvious sexual dimorphism.
Most populations occur between 1500 and 3000 meters above sea level on either side of the Andes throughout northern South America. Typically found in the subtropical and temperate forests, they can usually be found inhabiting dense under growth.
