An Oven Bird...not a Turkey!

I guess I'm in the bird mood. This is an Oven Bird, one of my favorites. 

Often seen, when they are, under bushes digging through leaves and detritus. Walks like a dove, one foot in front of the other vs hopping. A very cute and sweet bird.  Strangely enough a physical trait that doesn't seem to be categorized one way or another in the ornithological field. At least it's strange to me at least since it seems like it would be an evolutionary beneficial energy saving trait. At least I can't find anything on the subject so far...
