NoNot a migrant
Animals that do not make seasonal movements and stay in their native home ranges all year round are called not migrants or residents.
The Caracas tapaculo is 11.5 cm (4.5 in) long and weighs approximately 24 g (0.85 oz). The adult has dark gray upperparts, a tawny rump, and a paler gray throat and breast. The flanks and crissum (the area around the cloaca) are tawny with dusky barring. The juvenile's plumage has not been described.
The Caracas tapaculo is found in the Venezuelan Coastal Range and separately in a small area where Sucre, Anzoátegui, and Monagas States meet. It inhabits the undergrowth of several humid forest types including primary and secondary woodland and their edges. Unlike many other tapaculos, it tends to shun Chusquea bamboo. It ranges in elevation between 1,200 and 2,400 m (3,900 and 7,900 ft).
The IUCN has assessed the Caracas tapaculo as being of Least Concern. Although its population size has not been determined, it is thought to be fairly common. Much of the larger western part of its range is within protected areas but the smaller eastern area is suffering deforestation.
