Imeri Warbling-Antbird Hypocnemis flavescens

Imeri Warbling-Antbird is confined to a relatively small area in extreme northwest Amazonia, being distributed across southwest Venezuela, eastern Colombia, and far northwest Brazil, which range conforms to the so-called Imeri Center of Endemism, hence the English name. It seems to occur parapatrically with Guianan Warbling-Antbird (Hypocnemis cantator) in southeast Venezuela. This habits of this antbird seems typical of the species complex as a whole, being usually found in reasonably close-knit pairs, more occasionally in family groups or alone, and sometimes within mixed-species understory flocks. Imeri Warbling-Antbird inhabits both terra firme and seasonally flooded forests.
