Attractive and easy to identify, this plump little flycatcher is often seen perched conspicuously in forest clearings or along the roadside. Look for a yellowish bird with a gray head, obvious white “headlights,” brown or rufous tail, and a bold lemon-yellow rump. Fairly common in the foothills and subtropical zone, usually perched fairly low. Frequently sallies out from its perch to grab an insect; the yellow rump is particularly obvious. Listen for the emphatic “pit!" call.
