    This family includes a fairly large number of small and medium-sized bird species, the largest reaching a body length of 25-26 cm. They are quite diverse in appearance, but all have modest plumage: brownish above, lighter below. The throat is usually white. Some have a crest on their heads. The wings are rounded, the tail of true stove-makers (genus Furnarius) is rather short, while in others it can be long. The beak is usually short, but sometimes it is long and curved. Male and female differ little or not at all. Most stoveworms live in forests, but there are species that inhabit open plains with shrub thickets, some also settle along the coastal dunes.

    They are all insectivorous, with a few exceptions. Some mountain stoves (genus Geositta) and tokoko (genus Chilia) feed on seeds and other plant foods, and wagtails (genus Cinclodes) feed on crustaceans and small aquatic invertebrates. Moreover, these wagtails are the only passerines that have adapted to feeding in the sea.

    All stove makers are closed nesting birds (with one exception). They arrange nests in a variety of conditions: they dig holes themselves, use the holes of other animals and birds, woodpecker hollows, build complex structures from plant materials, etc. But the most famous, of course, are stove-makers of the genus Furnarius (6 species), who make nests from clay or mud, really somewhat reminiscent of miniature stoves - with a side entrance to the nest and with a difficult path inside to the nest chamber (perhaps an analogy with a chimney). The whole family got its name from these birds.

    The nesting period for most stove plants lasts a very long time - up to 9 months or even more. The main part of it is occupied by the construction of the nest. For laying eggs and incubating chicks, the usual time for many birds is 4-5 weeks. In clutch there are 3-5, sometimes up to 9 white (with few exceptions) eggs. Most species nest in separate pairs, but some build large "multi-apartment" nests together.

    Stove birds have spread very widely in all possible ecological niches of South America - from the highest mountains to the humid jungle and from the hot pampa to the stony cold deserts of Tierra del Fuego. To the north they are found as far as Central Mexico. Breeds on Trinidad and Tobago islands. Absent in the Antilles.

    In South America, stove birds have filled all the niches not occupied here by other passerine birds: blackbirds, small tits, long-tailed tits, dippers, warblers, crested larks, wagtails, etc.

    There are 220 species in this family, included in 19 genera (according to other sources - in 55 genera). Thus, the family system is poorly developed, and the ecology of many species is almost unknown.

    The red stove maker (Furnarius rufus) is widely spread and better known than many others. It settles in open habitats in southern Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. In appearance, it resembles a thrush, its body length is 19-20 cm. The plumage is dull, reddish-brown. Builds a large stove-shaped nest in the rainy season. Its height is about 25 cm, width is about 20 cm, and its length reaches 30 cm. The lateral spiral entrance leads to the nesting chamber, which is lined with grass and leaves. The bird is not afraid of human proximity and often makes a nest on fence posts and even on the roofs of houses. The nest is used only once, the next year a new one is built. However, the strong building does not collapse for a long time and for several years it serves swallows and other closed-nesting birds.

    Miners, or cave nuthatches (genus Geositta), are small brown birds. They resemble our larks. They live in open places. They feed mainly on seeds. For nests, long burrows are dug in the cliffs or they occupy the burrows of the viscacs. Titmouse Needle-tails (Leptasthenura spp.) Nest in hollows.

    Stove-makers, stove-birds, potter-birds (lat.Furnariidae) - a family of passerine birds,

    Body length 12-28 cm. The plumage is often brown or reddish, similar in males and females. Distributed from Central Mexico to the south of Chile and Argentina. They live in forests, pampas, along the banks of rivers and seas. They nest in burrows, hollows, rock crevices or build covered nests in trees; some mold massive covered nests from clay (hence the name). The eggs are white or blue. Incubate for 15-20 days.

    They feed on insects, crustaceans, spiders, some species - on seeds. / (Wikipedia)
