Ruddy Treerunner

Taken in the Monte Verde cloud forest, the identification of this bird hinges on the uniformly reddish brown plumage with whitish throat, and scaling on the breast. Unfortunately the head is turned away. However, there is a suggestion of a pale supercilium (stripe over the eye and running to the back of the head), which again supports the more common Ruddy Treerunner over the rare scaly-throated foliage-gleaner.
