Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A woodland species typically found at lower elevation and in scrub and mangroves; hunts from within woods, but also on exposed perches. The similar Sad Flycatcher is smaller, smaller billed, lacks rust on the primaries, and has weak or no wingbars. The similar Rufous-tailed Flycatcher is larger, darker on the head and chest, has a heftier bill and bright rufous on tail. The dawn song is “weeeee-pitit-wee,” with first and last syllables rising and then falling. Calls include a whistled rising-and-then-falling “weee-ee,” an emphatic twittering “prrree,” and a sputtering “peet-it,” among other quick twittering calls.
