Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Quite large flycatcher found at all levels of humid forests including Araucaria forests. The upperparts are a deep rufous contrasting with a mostly gray head and paler orange underparts. Typically perches almost motionless, but its voice is a far-carrying whistled “fee-fee-fii,” repeated for long periods all day long. Looks similar to the larger Gray-hooded Attila, but has a rufous rather than gray throat. In the nonbreeding season migrates north into northern Amazonia.
