The Straight-billed Woodcreeper can easily be recognized by its pale and straight bill. The species is common in our region, and occurs in a variety of habitats. For example, in Mãe-da-lua reserve, it can be seen in the subhumid mata fresca forest, but also in dry forest on top of the hills, in Caatinga in the lowland, and in semiopen areas close to my house.
