Elaenia sordida

Elaenia is a genus of passerine birds in the tyrant flycatcher family which occur in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Except by voice, specific identification is often difficult since many species are very similar.

• Fiofío oscuro, fiofío brasileño, fiofío paranaense, viudita oscura
• Small-headed elaenia, Brazilian elaenia

Scientific classification:
Species:E. sordida

Paso Centurión, Cerro Largo, Uruguay

This species was determined by experts who accompanied us to the bird watching, because it is very difficult to determine it by its appearance, luckily we had the opportunity to listen to its vocalizations.
