Planalto Hermit

Planalto Hermit

The Planalto Hermit (Phaethornis pretrei) is a species of bird in the Trochilidae family, the hummingbirds. It is found in eastern and south-central Brazil, eastern Bolivia, Paraguay, and marginally in north-western Argentina. It is essentially a non-forest hermit, being found in a wide range of open and semi-open habitats, including Caatinga, Cerrado, and the Pantanal. It is widespread and generally common, and therefore considered to be of Least Concern by BirdLife International. It is usually easily recognized by its relatively large size, broad white tips to all the rectrices, and cinnamon-buff underparts and rump – the latter contrasing clearly with its tail and remaining upperparts.
