Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Attractive but generally uncommon and rather local terrestrial flycatcher, breeding in Patagonia and migrating north for the winter. Breeds in open grassland, coastal dunes, and gravel steppes, usually with bluffs or rocky outcrops nearby for nesting; winters in open Andean habitats and bogs. Note distinctive head pattern and strong cinnamon wash to flanks and belly. Compare with much larger Chocolate-vented Tyrant.
