Hilty et al., 2013
The Delta Amacuro softtail (Thripophaga amacurensis) is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae. It is endemic to the Delta Amacuro in Venezuela.
Its natural habitat is riparian tropical seasonally flooded forest and savanna.
Ovenbirds or furnariids are a large family of small suboscine passerine birds found from Mexico and Central to southern South America. They form the family Furnariidae. This is a large family containing around 315 species and 70 genera. The ovenbird, which breeds in North America, is not a furnariid – rather it is a distantly related bird of the wood warbler family, Parulidae.
Hudson's canastero is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae. It is found in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay in natural temperate grasslands. It is named after Argentine-British ornithologist William Henry Hudson.
Automolus is a genus of bird in the ovenbird family Furnariidae.
Clibanornis is a genus of birds in the family Furnariidae. Formerly, it contained only the Canebrake groundcreeper but phylogenetic studies revealed that this species is closely related to other four species formerly placed in Automolus and Hyloctistes.
The eastern woodhaunter, also known as the Amazonian woodhaunter, is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae. It was formerly treated as conspecific with the western woodhaunter and when lumped had the name "striped woodhaunter". It is found in the western part of the Amazon rainforest: west Brazil, southeast Colombia, east Ecuador, northeast Peru, south Venezuela and north Bolivia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. The species nests in earth tunnels.
The blue-crowned manakin is a species of bird in the family Pipridae. The males have a brilliant blue cap; some have black, others have green body plumage, but the relationship between the subspecies is not well understood.
The white-winged becard is a species of bird in the family Tityridae. It has traditionally been placed in Cotingidae or Tyrannidae, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae, where it is now placed by the South American Classification Committee. The species contains 8 subspecies that vary markedly in plumage and voice, and it has been suggested that they represent more than one species.
The buff-fronted foliage-gleaner is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae, the ovenbirds. It is found in southeastern regions of South America in the cerrado and pantanal of Brazil and Paraguay as well as areas of southeast coastal Brazil; also extreme northeast Argentina. In western Andean and northwest South America, it is found in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia; and in the northwest, it is also found in Panama and Costa Rica.
The Pale-faced bare-eye, sometimes known as the pale-faced antbird, is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It has often been placed in the monotypic genus Skutchia, but based on genetic evidence this genus is now merged with Phlegopsis, and this treatment was adopted by the SACC in 2010. It is endemic to humid forest in the south-central Amazon in Brazil. It is an obligate ant-follower only rarely seen away from ant swarms.
The russet-mantled softtail is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae. It is endemic to Peru.
Thripophaga is the genus of birds that popularly are known as softtails. They are members of the ovenbird family, Furnariidae. They are found in wooded and shrubby habitats, sometimes near water, in South America.
The striated softtail is a species of bird in the family Furnariidae. It is endemic to eastern Brazil.
Upucerthia is a genus of bird in the family Furnariidae.
The Patagonian forest earthcreeper, also known as the forest earthcreeper, is a species of bird in the ovenbird family Furnariidae. The species was described in 1900 by W.E.D. Scott, but was listed as a subspecies of the scale-throated earthcreeper in Chapman in 1919. A 2009 paper elevated it back up to species status.
The Magdalena antbird is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found in Colombia and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
The Várzea thrush is a resident breeding bird in the western Amazon. It is a cryptic species identified through molecular analysis of museum specimens. It was formerly considered conspecific with Hauxwell's thrush.
Velasquez's woodpecker is a species of bird in the family Picidae usually considered conspecific with the golden-fronted woodpecker. The IOC has split the species, but many other taxonomists have not, including the American Ornithological Society.
