Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small flycatcher of open and semiopen scrubby habitats in the Andes. Often in rocky valleys and gullies, and agricultural terraces in and around villages. Usually seen as singles or pairs, perched quietly at low to middle levels in bushes, dropping to the ground to snatch prey. Note its fairly long tail, which is often flicked upwards when perched. Combination of bold white eyebrow and overall gray plumage is distinctive. Compare with smaller Piura Chat-Tyrant, where the two species overlap locally in Peru.
