Dull grayish flycatcher, very similar to other flycatchers, especially Hammond's and Gray. Generally grayish with green-tinged back and pale yellow wash on belly. Wingtips shorter than Hammond's Flycatcher and typically found in brushier, more open habitats such as forest edge, but not as open and sparse as Gray Flycatcher. Listen for classic “bean-dip” call as well as dry "whit" note, similar to Gray but noticeably different from Hammond's. Without an excellent view, silent birds often best left unidentified.
