Stripe-breasted Spinetail

Synallaxis cinnamomea
Conservation Status: Least Concern

The Stripe-breasted Spinetail is a common resident of mature forest on both Trinidad and Tobago. Denizens of the forest floor, they are rarely observed. Hikers in T&T are familiar with the species, as its vocalization sounds very much like an encouraging voice saying “keep going”.
