Distribution and habitat[edit]

It is found throughout most of the Amazon Basin, except the area east of the Rio Negro. Rarely found at the edges of the forest, it prefers being at the mid-strata level deep in the forest. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

Description[edit]

The dwarf tyrant-manakin is dull olive above, but lights to a yellow-olive below. It has a short tail.

Behavior[edit]

These birds rarely move, but produce a distinctive two-note call, which readily identifies them.
