Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small flycatcher found in foothill and subtropical forest from around 1500-2300m. Grizzled face pattern with bold black and white crescent on cheek like some other bristle-tyrants and tyrannulets. Look for Variegated’s bold cinnamon wingbars and bicolored bill. Sexes alike. Found singly or in pairs, usually in lower to middle levels of forest, often following a mixed species flock. Listen for high twittering series of “tsit” notes, sometimes with a longer “tsee!” at the end.
