Montane Foliage-gleaner is a mid-elevation, arboreal furnariid of northern South America. Found from northern Venezuela south along the Andes to Bolivia, it inhabits canopy and edge habitat between 900 and 2300 meters in elevation. The species is dull rufous-brown above and ochre-brown below with a white throat, a pale white-buff eyering and postocular stripe, a short, stout, somewhat upswept bill, and a long, rufous tail. Montane Foliage-gleaner is a frequently seen species in many Andean forests, where it might quietly accompany mixed flocks in small numbers.
