Order Passeriformes
Family Furnariidae

This South American species is found along the eastern slopes of the Andes, from south-western Venezuela to central Bolivia.

These birds are 20-21 cm long.

The striped treehunter is mostly found on the undergrowth of mountain rainforests, but also in degraded patches of former forests, at altitudes of 900-3.000 m.

They hunt among dense vegetation, taking various invertebrates.

Striped treehunters breed in October-January. They nest is made of rootlets and placed in a burrow excavated into a steep bank or vegetation-covered road-cut. The female lays 2-3 eggs which are are incubated for 13-17 days. The chicks are fed by both parents and fledge 20-23 days after hatching.

This species has a large breeding range and is described as fairly common. This population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats.
