Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small flycatcher with disjunct range from Costa Rica to the Andean foothills to southeast Brazil. Olive above and yellow below with diffuse olive streaking on breast. Also note gray crown, white spectacles, messy whitish face, and two yellow wingbars. Not very distinctive visually, but look for orange lower mandible and reddish eye. Best identified by voice, a series of six to ten piercing “peew!” notes. Occurs in singles or pairs in the middle to upper levels of forest, mostly below 2,000 m but occasionally venturing higher. Often follows mixed-species flocks.
