Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized, dull flycatcher without many distinguishing features; typical of the genus Myiarchus. This species is found from around 1100-2400m in Andean cloud forest and edges from Venezuela to Bolivia, higher than most other similar species. Generally brownish above with pale whitish throat and upper breast fading to pale lemon-yellow belly. Note pale yellowish edges to outer tail feathers. Singles or pairs usually found at lower or middle levels, but can range into canopy. Listen for ‘pip’ calls and full song with descending “weer” notes.
