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 Bolivia. Within limited distribution in the U.S., has an affinity for sycamore trees in foothills and canyons. Elsewhere in range, found in a wider variety of forested habitats. Distinctive voice is often the first clue to its presence. Compare with Streaked, Variegated, and Piratic Flycatchers; note bill size and voice.
