The Yellow-chinned Spinetail is a furnariid that distributed is across tropical and subtropical South America, though is scarce or absent in western Amazonia and along the Pacific coast. This species is strongly associated water and occurs in a variety of marsh habitats, such as reed beds, ditches, wet grassy areas, mangroves and bordering shrubbery. Despite the eponymous common name and its conspicuous behavior, the yellow chin is difficult to see; this species best is identified by its simple bicolored appearance (rufous above, white below), habitat and its frequentlyuttered churring rattle.
