SPECIES INFO

The Planalto Hermit (Phaethornis pretrei) is a species of bird in the Trochilidae family, the hummingbirds. It is found in eastern and south-central Brazil, eastern Bolivia, Paraguay, and marginally in north-western Argentina.

It is usually easily recognized by its relatively large size, broad white tips to all the rectrices, and cinnamon-buff underparts and rump "? the latter contrasing clearly with its tail and remaining upperparts.

This is essentially a non-forest hermit, being found in a wide range of open and semi-open habitats, including Caatinga, Cerrado, and the Pantanal. It is widespread and generally common, and therefore considered to be of Least Concern by BirdLife International.
