Many people dub this species a dazzling rainbow of color. Do you agree?

Let’s admire the enchanting plumage of these cute tiny birds below!

Like many other birds, females of the many-colored rush tyrant are duller than males. Young birds also lack the gorgeous plumage of adults.

These adorable fluffy little birds have a large range. They distribute in South America, from southeast Brazil to southern Argentina to central Chile. They can also be found in the Andes of south-east Peru and west Bolivia, and the Antofagasta Region in northern Chile.

Despite the wide-scale, the many-colored rush tyrant does face threats due to habitat loss and water pollution.

They prefer living in marshland and reedbeds around lakes and rivers where they spend time foraging for food.

During the breeding season, the females build their cone-shaped nests to the side of a single reed stalk. This nest is made from wet vegetation and dries over time. However, they need to improve their stability in windy weather. The females then lay 2 – 3 eggs and incubate them. They continue to feed the hatchlings until fully-fledged. Noticeably, the males join their partners in this process.
