A medium-sized flycatcher, reminiscent of a mix between a becard and a Myiarchus flycatcher. Uncommon to rare in lowlands and foothills from eastern Panama to northwest Ecuador. Gray above and white below with a dark cap and black wings with bold white edging. More slender-bodied and longer-tailed than a becard. Occurs in open areas, second-growth, and forest edge, often perching conspicuously in the middle to upper levels.
