White-browed Antpitta Hylopezus ochroleucus

  • Order: Passeriformes
  • Family: Grallariidae
  • Monotypic
  • Authors: Harold F. Greeney



There are no details of general behavior available for this poorly-known species. Adult White-browed Antpittas sing from somewhat elevated perches inside thickets and forage by walking and hopping along the forest floor, occasionally probing into the leaf litter and soil (Krabbe and Schulenberg 2003, van Perlo 2009).


No data. White-browed Antpitta presumably is territorial, at least during the breeding season, but there are no published data on territorial defense, maintenance, or fidelity, or the size of the territory or home range, for this species.

Sexual Behavior

Not described, probably at least socially monogamous.

Social and interspecific behavior

Little information; presumably is primarily solitary.


No reports of predation on White-browed Antpitta?
