Myiodynastes luteiventris

Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, streaky flycatcher that sounds remarkably similar to a squeaky toy. Note bold white eyebrow and mustache and bright rufous tail. Large bill. Ranges from Mexico to South America, with very limited distribution in the U.S., where it has an affinity for sycamore trees in foothills and canyons. Distinctive voice is often the first clue to its presence. The only flycatcher in the U.S. that is entirely streaky, but compare similar Streaked, Variegated, and Piratic Flycatchers in other parts of range.
