The Bearded Tachuri (Polystictus pectoralis) is a near-threatened species that has a very local and disjunct distribution primarily across eastern South America.
It is suspected that the decline in this species is due to the conversion of native grasslands to agriculture. Males have a largely black head, with a white stripe in front of the eye, rufous underparts, and largely brown upperparts. Females lack the black feathering on the head, but do possess a pale supercilium.
The Yellow-breasted Flycatcher (Tolmomyias flaviventris) is distributed, in a wide variety of forest types, across much of northern and central South America, from northern Colombia and Venezuela, as well as in Trinidad and Tobago, south to the Atlantic coastal forests of eastern Brazil.
The Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet (Tyrannulus elatus) is inconspicuous, except for its voice. These small flycatchers are common and widespread in humid lowlands, where they occur in river edge and disturbed forest, at forest edges, and clearings.
