Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce, unremarkable flycatcher of Andean cloud forest understory. Note the yellow underparts, vague brownish wingbars, stubby bill, and faint eye-ring. Male’s orange crest is usually concealed and rarely seen in the field. The species lacks strong field marks, and voice is often the easiest way to identify it. Typical song is a high-pitched “sit-sweet!-sit,” sometimes followed by a few softer notes.
