This species account was made possible by a partnership between Neotropical Birds and Partners in Flight (PIF). Through the PIF Science Committee and the leadership and co-editing of Dr. Janet Ruth (USGS), volunteers have been engaged (many of them university students) to write species accounts for PIF priority species identified in PIF’s Saving Our Shared Birds (Berlanga et al. 2010).
