Paramo tapaculo

The Paramillo Tapaculo resembles other Scytalopus tapaculos, being overall dark grey, but lacking the brown lower flanks of the Paramo Tapaculo.

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

The Paramo Tapaculo (Scytalopus opacus) is a species of bird in the Formicariidae family. It is found at altitudes of 2,600 to 4,000 metres (8,500 to 13,000 ft) in the Andes of northern Peru, Ecuador and southern Colombia (Cordillera Central). It has traditionally been treated as a subspecies of S. canus, but the two have different voices, leading to them being split into separate species in 2010. The Paramo Tapaculo resembles other Scytalopus tapaculos, being overall dark grey with brown to the lower flanks. More

name Paramo Tapaculo for S. opacus and propose a new name for the heretofore virtually unknown S. canus. More

the Paramo Tapaculo in the area has now been published by Niels Krabbe as a new species, named Paramillo Tapaculo. There have also been major trail improvements - while still a steep climb, there is now a good trail from the cabin up to the paramo. This trail is good for all the endemics and specialties of the reserve. UPDATE! September 2009. More

The Paramo Tapaculo (Scytalopus canus) is common in the timberline and paramo areas of the Northern Andes of Colombia, Ecuador, and northern Peru. It was described 95 years ago by Frank Chapman on the basis of ten specimens collected at 3,810 meters elevation on Páramo de Paramillo in the Western Cordillera of Antioquia, Colombia. This site has been inaccessible for decades so further information on this species was not possible. More

we heard a calling Paramo Tapaculo nearby which although typically elusive did allow us several good close views when it came within a few feet of us. We then proceeded back to Ecuador's capital for the end of the tour.
