Guianan Warbling-Antbird Hypocnemis cantator

Until recently considered part of a single widespread species, known simply as Warbling Antbird, Guianan Warbling-Antbird occupies the northeastern part of the complex’s range, from eastern Venezuela, through the Guianas, to northeast Amazonian Brazil. To the west this species is replaced by Imeri Warbling-Antbird (Hypocnemis flavescens), and to the south, on the opposite bank of the Amazon, by Spix’s Warbling-Antbird (Hypocnemis striata). The three differ in their loud songs, but also to some extent in morphology, with, for instance, both sexes of the Imeri Warbling-Antbird being streaked with black above and below.
