Data from specimens, literature, and recent field observations are used to summarize current knowledge concerning the distribution, habitat, behavior, body weight, diet, and soft-part colors for 9 little-known bird species that occur in Bolivia: Buff-bellied Hermit, Phaethornis subochraceus (Trochilidae), Bolivian Earthcreeper, Upucerthia harterti (Furnariidae), Buff-browed Spinetail, Synallaxis (azarae) superciliosa (Furnariidae), Stripe-backed Antbird, Myrmorchilus strigilatus (Formicariidae), Sulphur-bellied Tyrant-Manakin, Neopelma sulphureiventer (Tyrannoidea), Cochabamba Mountain-Finch, Poospiza (Compsospiza) garleppi (Emberizinae), Fulvous-headed Brush-Finch, Atlapetes fulviceps (Emberizinae), Rufous-bellied Saltator, Saltator rufiventris (Cardinalinae), and Velvet-fronted Grackle, Lampropsar tanagrinus (Icteridae). Data are presented that strongly suggest that Synallaxis superciliosa is best regarded as a subspecies of S. azarae.
