Birds of Panama - large bird
The antbirds are a large family,
Thamnophilidae, of passerine birds
found across subtropical and
tropical Central and South America,
from Mexico to Argentina. There are
more than 200 species, known
variously as antshrikes, antwrens,
antvireos, fire-eyes, bare-eyes and
bushbirds. To various degrees,
around eighteen species specialise
in following columns of army ants to
eat the small invertebrates flushed
by the ants, and many others may
feed in this way opportunistically.
