Featured Species: Straight-billed Woodcreeper (Dendroplex picus)

The Straight-billed Woodcreeper (Dendroplex picus) is a species of bird in the woodcreeper family. It's widespread, and is distributed from Panama south through central South America and to northeastern Brazil, found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests,  scrub, riparian forest, and heavily degraded former forest.

It has a very straight pale colored bill that can even look slightly upturned unlike most other woodcreepers. Otherwise, mostly dark brown with fine streaking on the head and breast, but unstreaked back. Usually seen singly or in pairs working up tree trunks and branches, usually at lower to middle levels.
