White-crested Tyrannulet (Serpophaga subcristata)

The White-crested Tyrranulet is widespread east of the Andes in the southern Cone, found from C Bolivia to E Brazil and south to the northern edge of Patagonia in Argentina. This is a small flycatcher which tends to perch in a rather horizontal manner and often half-cocks its tail as it forages or when excited. It has a grayish crown with a white central crown stripe that is usually relatively easy to see in the field.
