Physical charateristics

As a result of its preference for the canopy it is usually located by voice but visually can be identified by two main features; firstly, the white supercilium which meet over the bill and, in combination with the faint white eyering, give the bird a spectacled look; secondly, the two white wing-bars which are formed, uniquely for a tyrannulet, by spots.

No data

Feeding habits

Generally it lives alone or in pairs near the water, actively searching for insects in the foliage and often following mixed-species flocks


This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
White-lored Tyrannulet status Least Concern


Sedentary throughout range.
