Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large flycatcher of mature forests. Relatively bright and richly colored for a Myiarchus flycatcher; especially note bright yellow belly, grayish throat and breast, and dull pinkish base to the lower mandible. Most easily identified by voice: listen for loud, rising “queeEEEP” and various rolling, burry calls. Breeds in deciduous forests throughout eastern North America; winters as far south as northern South America. Compare especially with Brown-crested Flycatcher on the wintering grounds
