Spotted Antbird
Hylophylax naevioides

Native Range: Latin America

Notes: antbirds get their name from the fact that they often follow marching colonies of army ants, eating insects disturbed by the latter; this diminutive antbird species gets its other name from the heavy black spotting on its otherwise white breast.
