Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large flycatcher with large hooked bill. Brownish with paler gray throat, pale yellow belly, and rufous edges on flight feathers and tail. Similar to Ash-throated Flycatcher but has larger bill and different voice. Appears more washed out than Great Crested Flycatcher. Without a good view or hearing it well, sometimes best left unidentified. Widespread throughout Central and South America with limited range in US; found in woodland habitats especially near water. Variety of call notes include a liquidy "whip" and various churs and trills.
