Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized flycatcher with a small head and long tail. Found in forests and second growth. Largely olive-brown above with a light gray throat and flanks, and a yellow center to the belly. Note two pale wingbars. Brazilian subspecies differ from the Andean subspecies in being larger and darker with more olive upperparts and a different song—a harsh and squeaky “weehr-drrrr-whee.”
