A blue flycatcher that isn’t blue. Brown overall with a white throat, a gray face, and a faint hint of orange on the breast. Pale eye-ring gives it a large-eyed appearance. Distinguished from females of other blue flycatchers by its lack of pale coloration on the lores, its gray instead of brown face, and its relatively long-billed profile. Inhabits lowland and foothill broadleaf forests. Song is a rapid-fire blast of high notes.
