The Wing-banded Hornero (Furnarius figulus), or the Tail-banded Hornero, is a species of bird in the Furnariidae family, the ovenbirds.
It is endemic to Brazil
Its natural habitats include a wide range of wooded habitats, especially near water.
Wing-banded Hornero exists in two ranges, separated by 1000 km, each population representing a subspecies
. The largest range occurs in Atlantic northeastern and eastern Brazil, the Northeast Region, Brazil
, as well as into continental regions inland, (part of the Cerrado
). In recent years, this population has expanded southwards at least as far as São Paulo
. The second population ranges upstream in a strip
along the Amazon River
for about 1700 km as well as southwards to the upstream reaches of the Araguaia River in the adjacent Tocantins-Araguaia River
drainage. This southerly strip ranges between two river systems in a strip approximately 2400 km long; the western portion is the downstream half of the Xingu River
