Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small and chunky manakin-like flycatcher with a short bill and big eyes. Mostly rusty with a black crown, a yellow bill, and yellow-edged flight feathers. Males have a cinnamon back, which is olive-green in females. Found in the canopy and subcanopy of montane forests where it normally accompanies mixed-species flocks. The song is a fast sequence of “chik, chik, cheeut, chee-unhh” notes.
