Family Furnariidae

Family Furnariidae - pale-legged hornero Family Furnariidae - red-belled scythebill
The family Furnariidae is one of the largest bird families in the Americas. They are small to medium-sized birds, ranging from 9 to 35 centimetres in length. Species of this family can be found in virtually all Neotropical habitats. The Furnariidae has undergone a tremendous radiation with species in just about every biome. Some species are highly specialized on specific microhabitats and are restricted to only one or two Andean valleys. Furnariids can be found at city parks, humid montane and Amazonian rainforest, and at extreme elevations in some of the most barren habitat types. Furnariids have even colonized the rocky shores along the southern Pacific Ocean. Plumagewise they are rather uniform. Most species vary in shades of rufous, gray and black. The Furnariids are known as ovenbirds due to the elaborate, vaguely “oven-like” clay nests built by the horneros. However, most other ovenbirds build stick nests or nest in tunnels or clefts in rock. Recently, the woodcreepers (formerly Dendrocolaptidae) were merged into this family. There are 50 genera and 149 species of the family Furnariidae known to occur in Peru.
