Rufous-tailed Xenops (Xenops milleri) Science Article 1

abstract

This paper provides information on the behavior, distribution, and taxonomy of 36 species of rainforest and marsh birds found in the tropical lowlands of southeastern Peru. Most species discussed are little-known forest residents, but some are widespread and common in other regions, occurring in Peru only as migrants or vagrants. Observations reported herewere made intermittently from June 1977 to October 1981, during which time I spent about 6 months in the Dpto. Madre de Dios.
