Streak-headed Woodcreeper

Lepidocolaptes souleyetii


The Streak-headed Woodcreeper (Lepidocolaptes souleyetii), is a passerine bird which breeds in the tropical New World from southern Mexico to northwestern Peru, northern Brazil and Guyana, and on Trinidad. This woodcreeper is found in lowlands up to 1500 m altitude, although normally below 900 m, in damp light woodland, plantations, gardens, and clearings with trees. It builds a leaf-lined nest 4.5 to 24 m up in a tree cavity, or sometimes an old woodpecker hole, and lays two white eggs. The Streak-headed Woodcreeper is typically 19 cm long, and weighs 28 g.
