Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized flycatcher, rather slender and long-tailed. Brownish with paler grayish throat, yellow belly, and faint rufous edges on wing feathers. Long hooked bill. Most similar to Ash-throated Flycatcher but brighter yellow belly, slightly grayer throat, and less rufous in tail (beware juveniles show more rufous in the tail than adults). Also note habitat differences. Narrower bill than Brown-crested Flycatcher. Widespread in Central and South America with limited U.S. range; where it is found primarily in oak woodland in foothills and canyons. In other parts of its range found in a wide variety of habitats. Listen for plaintive, sad "wheer" call.
