ORDER: PASSERIFORMES

FAMILY: fFURNARIIDAE

A large group of medium-sized birds with 117 species. Found in almost all neotropical habitats from seaside to high altitude sites. Sedentary or in pairs. Sexes are similar. Feed on nocturnal insects from leaf litters. Others probe barks for grubs. Very timid birds that sing early in the morning and late in the afternoon thus difficult to spot. Female can lay up to six white or pale green-blue eggs in covered nests. Some species called ‘horneros’ built their nests with clay or mud in an ‘oven-like’ appearance. Other nests are made of stick and are found in tunnels or clefts in rocks.

Grupo grande de aves de tamaño medio con 117 especies que se encuentran en todos los ambientes y zonas térmicas del país. Sedentarias o en pares. Tanto el macho como la hembra parecen iguales. Se alimentan de insectos nocturnos del suelo o de tallos. Tanto el macho como la hembra lucen igual. Aves muy tímidas que cantan temprano en la mañana o al atardecer haciendo su observación más díficil. Las hembras ponen hasta seis huevos de colores blancos o azul-verdosos en nidos cubiertos. Algunas especies como los horneros usan solo barro para construir sus nidos que parecen hornos. Otros nidos son construídos con paja que se encuentran cavidades o entre rocas.
