Montane Woodcreeper

Lepidocolaptes lacrymiger

A rather small and slender woodcreeper climbs a trunk. It is beautiful with the finely spotted underparts and unstreaked upperparts. It goes from tree o tree. Only interested in its vertical world. With the long stiff tail feathers with projecting and downcurving spines, it keeps its balance during climbing. It probes beneath and gleans from moss sometimes from bark surfaces for anthropod prey.
