Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Difficult to identify, a fairly large flycatcher with grayish brown upperparts, pale throat and chest, and pale yellow belly. Easily confused with other related flycatcher species, especially Short-crested Flycatcher. Venezuelan shows a straighter bill with pinkish at base, as well as different voice. Sexes similar. Locally common or in low densities, usually alone, in dry to humid forest, gallery forest, savanna with trees, and scrubby areas next to forested areas. Less vocal than other flycatchers and similar by voice to Dusky-capped Flycatcher, but the song is a longer and melancholic “puuuueeEEEuuuuu.” Found only in Colombia and Venezuela.
