Endemic birds in Bolivia 3

Bolivian Earthcreeper is together with Chaco Earthcreeper now separated in its own family named Tarphonomus. The Bolivian Earthcreeper is endemic for the central part of Bolivia. This individual was photographed in Alto Tujsupaya, Sucre (2860 m) in August 2009. Good fieldmarks are the bill and the underside with no contrasts except the white throat.
