SPECIES INFO

The White-eyed Tody-tyrant (Hemitriccus zosterops) is a species of bird in the Tyrannidae family, the tyrant flycatchers.

It is found in the northern Amazon Basin of Brazil and the Guianas of French Guiana, Suriname, and southeast Guyana; also Amazonian Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru.

It is a small short-tailed bird, medium grayish and olive-greenish with fleckings of deep black and white on its wings. It has a short sharp stout black bill, and is named for its narrow white eye-ring and its white eyes.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical dry shrubland. In the Amazon Basin it is only found north of the Amazon River; in Venezuela it is in the headwaters of the Orinoco River in the south.
