Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small drab flycatcher of woodlands including, at times, mangrove swamps. This species is dull brown above and yellow-buff to orange-buff below. Adults lack wingbars and eyering, but immatures have dull buff wingbars. The tertial edges are typically quite bright, forming narrow stripes on the posterior folded wing. The Caribbean Elaenia is passingly similar but has bold wingbars and a gray eyebrow. Vocalizations include a whistled “peee-oo” followed by a low whistled trill and “pee-ooooo,” with the first syllable a clear whistle and the second a low-whistled trill. Also, commonly utters a sharp “pee.”
