Meet the acrobatic Ocellated Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus ocellatus), a voracious insect-eater that uses its stiffened tail to brace itself along tree trunks while pecking away at prey. This is the sixth installment in a series of bird videos by Dr. Jason Weckstein documenting the 2007 joint expedition between The Field Museum and Brazil’s Goeldi Museum to survey Amazonian species along the Rio Japurá and its tributaries.
