Karl Overman: Birds and More

 
 

The ovenbird family, restricted to the Neotropics, has hundreds of species with brown being the preferred color so not normally high on the list of birds that birders lust to see when they venture into the Neotropics.  This bird is different.  It has a small range in southwest Ecuador and northwest Peru and  is large, boldy pattern and just in general a unique bird with a unique name so birders go out of there way to try to see this species.
