Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large flycatcher; about the same size as a robin but more slender. Favors mature forests, where it nests in cavities. Brightly colored for a flycatcher, with yellow belly and rufous in the wings and tail. Quite vocal, giving loud, rising "queeEEEEP" and various rolling, burry calls. Distinguish from similar Ash-throated Flycatcher by range, bright plumage, and voice.
