Behavior:

In Ubatuba, on the north coast of SP, it also appears in damp or marshy restinga woods, usually at the foot of slopes in well-preserved areas (altitude <10 meters). It has been observed and recorded on a trail much used by residents to gain access to water from a waterfall, just meters from the city's busiest beach, where large real estate developments and tourist movements threaten local flora and fauna. (Henry Miller's personal observations Alexandre and Lucas Ramiro, 2016). In addition to its restricted distribution worldwide, Merulaxis ater is a shy bird and a hard-to-spotted bird of forest ferns. Virtually the only way to be seen is when it answers playback, when it comes very close. It is interesting to note that it usually approaches the jumps on the forest floor and in silence, only vocalizing when it is very close to the source that makes its call, which leads to the conclusion that it really intends to surprise the male that is invading its territory. .

EATING HABITS:

Catches insects and other small invertebrates.

CHARACTERISTICS

The Slaty Bristlefront is a passerine bird of the family Rhinocryptidae. Endemic to Brazil and the Atlantic Forest in the region of Paraty. Heavenly depends on protection of its natural habitat since it’s a specie at risk and thus rarely seen.
Measures about 6,7 inches, with males showing a predominantly bluish-gray color, with the rump, chrysos and lower belly regions brown. The females are completely brown.
