Gray-capped Hemispingus Kleinothraupis reyi


Endemic to western Venezuela, which is one of the hotspots for radiation in this genus, the Gray-capped Hemispingus is easily distinguished from sympatric congenerics by its gray crown and lack of any supercilium; the upperparts are otherwise olive and the underparts yellow, in common with many other Hemispingus. The Gray-capped Hemispingus is locally fairly common in montane forest and shrubby borders, and is usually encountered within mixed-species flocks of insectivores, foraging close above the ground. It is mostly found at elevations between 2200 and 3000 m.
