Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Drab grayish flycatcher found in forested areas and edges. Usually seen on a high perch as it watches for prey, then sallies out to snatch insects. After these short flights, it often (but not always) returns to the same perch. Nondescript plumage with dull wingbars. Note the song, which is a buzzy, descending "BREeerr." Looks nearly identical to Eastern Wood-Pewee, but separated by range.
