Short-tailed Pygmy-Tyrant

Myiornis ecaudatus (d'Orbigny & Lafresnaye, 1837)

The Short-tailed Pygmy Tyrant (Myiornis ecaudatus) is not only the smallest member of the tyrant-flycatcher family, but also the smallest passerine on earth. Among both the family and the order, only the closely related Black-capped Pygmy Tyrant approaches similarly diminutive sizes. The Pygmy Tyrant is widespread throughout most of the Amazon in northern and central South America. Source: Wikipedia
