Uncommon, medium-sized, overall brown flycatcher of humid tropical forest in lowlands. Note the hammerhead crest—very rarely fully raised to reveal spectacular, flame-red and violet-blue fan. Also note the long bill, and pale cinnamon rump and tail. Usually found as singles or pairs in open mid-level canopy, where flutters actively after insects. Nest is a straggly mass of dead vegetation up to 3 feet long that hangs from the tip of a branch, often along streambeds.
