From the Field: Scrub Greenlet

July 12, 2017


Scrub Greenlet (Hylophilus flavipes) is found in southernmost Central America and across northern South America, as well as on the island of Tobago.


Scrub greenlets feed on insects and spiders taken from the upper and middle levels of tree foliage, usually 2–8 m up in vegetation; feeds in slower, more vireo-like manner.


The Scrub Greenlet is a generally common inhabitant of arid scrub and lighter woodland, dry to moist forest , from sea level to approximately 900 m.
