The Giant Antpitta is remarkably large and can be found in the Andean cloud forest of Ecuador and southern Colombia. Its proportions are unusual, with a short tail, long legs, and stout bill. The underparts are marked with dense black barring on a cinnamon or buff background, and it has a gray crown and brown back. It can be distinguished from the Undulated Antpitta by its larger size and lack of gray back and white throat. Although generally uncommon, it can be seen visiting worm feeders in some locations. It is mostly a ground-dwelling bird but may also perch high up while singing its long, rising trill that gets louder as it goes. You can spot them during our bird photography tours in the Chocó Andino in Ecuador.
