Denizens of the thick tropical rainforest understory, reclusive in nature; these small passerines are more often heard than seen.
Insects comprise the bulk of their diets - some specialize in opportunistically feeding on insects fleeing from aggresive army ant swarms.
This broad family of over 200 species can be found throughout the neotropics, from Mexico to Argentina.
