Buff-rumped Warbler

As we walked along the river running through Villa Lapas on 2 July 2017, we saw two warblers foraging on rocks in the stream. They flicked their tails up and down like waterthrushes. Their bright, buffy rumps flashed. We recognized these birds—Buff-rumped Warblers—from 45 years ago in Peru and Ecuador. 

Buff-rumped Warblers are common from Central America through western Amazonia. They are always found near water and feed on or near the ground.
