Genus Serpophaga


Torrent Tyrannulet - The Torrent Tyrannulet is a bird of rocky mountain streams at elevations from 300 to 2200 m, although it is less common at the lower altitudes where the water currents are weaker. There is a nesting record from Costa Rica as low as 35 m, possibly as a result of displacement of birds by hydroelectric work higher up the Sarapiquí River.


River Tyrannulet - Its range consists of several Amazon Basin river-corridors and the Orinoco River drainage river corridors, and extending into neighbor contries, or a country-river border. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist shrubland located along these corridors.
