The Antpittas (Grallariidae) are a family 50 species of passerine birds of subtropical and tropical Central and South America.
They are forest birds that tend to feed on insects at or near the ground since many are specialist ant eaters. Most are drab in appearance with shades of brown, black, and white being their dominant tones. Compared to other birds that specialize in following ants, this family is the most tied to the ground. The long, powerful legs, which lend the birds a distinctive upright posture, and an essentially vestigial tail aid this lifestyle. They resemble the true pittas of Asian and Africa in that they are virtually tailess - they hop like some thrushes, and are much easier to hear than see.
