Brown-winged Schiffornis

Information about the Bird Brown-winged Schiffornis

The brown-winged schiffornis (Schiffornis turdina), is a species of Neotropical bird.

It is found from Mexico through Amazonia in eastern Brazil. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
It is medium-sized, about 24cm (9in.) long. Depending on subspecies, it is overall brownish or olive. The belly is often greyish.
The brown-winged schiffornis has traditionally been placed in the manakin family, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae, where now placed by SACC.
The species was split by the AOU in 2013 from the species complex thrush-like schiffornis.
