Cliff Flycatcher

The Cliff Flycatcher (Hirundinea ferruginea) is a species of bird found in Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist mountains, and heavily degraded former forest.

The Cliff Flycatcher is only found east of the Andes cordillera, and therefore is not found in Chile. In the Amazon Basin, it surrounds the basin in the foothills, and some higher elevations. It ranges down to central Argentina west of the Pampas, and east of the Pampas to southern Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. It also extends southeast of the Amazon Basin in the Brazilian Highlands, to the Atlantic and south Atlantic coast of Brazil (about 5000 miles of coastline).
