Buff-throated Woodcreeper

Dendrocolaptes guttatus Lichtenstein, 1820

The Buff-throated Woodcreeper is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Buff-throated Woodcreepers appear es- pecially apt to engage in this activity, and seem stim- ulated to do so, if they bring long pieces of stiff bark that will not enter while held transversely in the bill. Then the bird may peck at the edges of the orifice in an effort to widen it. More

The Buff-throated Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus guttatus) is a resident passerine bird found in tropical South America in the Guiana Shield and disjunctly in the northern Atlantic Forest. It formerly included the Cocoa Woodcreeper and the Lafresnaye's Woodcreeper as subspecies. Some authorities retain Lafresnaye's position as a subspecies of the Buff-throated Woodcreeper, but the resulting group is polyphyletic (see Systematics and evolution). More

considered a subspecies of the Buff-throated Woodcreeper, but this combined "species" would be polyphyletic. It includes the Dusky-billed Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus guttatoides eytoni), which sometimes is considered a separate species (see Taxonomy). Contents - * 1 Description * 2 Ecology * 3 Taxonomy * 3.

Also like Buff-throated Woodcreeper, this species gives a sharp, piercing whistle that may be referred to as a short call. This call, which is given most frequently when the birds go to roost or when they are incubating (but apparently not when they are feeding young), has been described as “cheer” or “pyewl” (ffrench 1973, Willis and Eisenmann 1979, Skutch 1981, Willis 1983b, Stiles and Skutch 1989).
