Greenish Schiffornis (Schiffornis virescens)

The Greenish Schiffornis is a rather drab colored bird that inhabits the dark understory of the rainforest. Their taxonomic position remains somewhat of a mistery, as this bird has morphological characteristics that link it to the Tyrannidae, Cotingidae and even Pipridae. More recently it has been positioned in a relatively new family, the Tityridae, but still this isn't totally conclusive.
