|Male in NW Ecuador|
(Salvin & Godman, 1892)
The Esmeraldas antbird (Myrmeciza nigricauda) is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found in Colombia and Ecuador. The species has been the source of taxonomic confusion in the past, as the male was placed as a separate species (and in another genus, Sipia). It is only recently that the male and female were realised to be the same species.
