Paramo or Loja Tapaculo

Scytalopus [opacus or androstictus] (= Scytalopus opacus) Zimmer, JT, 1941

The Paramo Tapaculo (Scytalopus opacus) is a species of bird in the Formicariidae family. It is found at altitudes of 2,600 to 4,000 metres (8,500 to 13,000 ft) in the Andes of northern Peru, Ecuador and southern Colombia (Cordillera Central). It has traditionally been treated as a subspecies of S. canus, but the two have different voices, leading to them being split into separate species in 2010. Source: Wikipedia
