  1. Black-and-white Tody-Flycatcher female

    Black-and-white Tody-Flycatcher female

    And the beautiful female to go along! I'd stopped to shelter from a rainstorm, and not long after the rain had stopped, these two came through the understory behind me, their presence betrayed by their harsh vocalizations. This is a very poorly known bird in the department of Pasco, so I was...
  2. Black-and-white Tody-Flycatcher male

    Black-and-white Tody-Flycatcher male

    A lovely little Amazonian flycatcher with a strange distribution, it has populations in eastern Amazonian Brazil (mainly ParĂ¡), the Peruvian lowlands north of the Amazon, and the foothills of Ecuador and Peru.

    Pewee Challenge, Ecuador

    Hi guys, Saw this Pewee in Eastern Ecuador at about 1500 m altitude in around October. I was thinking either Smoke-coloured or Blackish Pewee? Thanks
  4. La Sagra's flycatcher

    La Sagra's flycatcher

    Our most rare flycatcher sighting down here - this Bahamas stray very occasionally makes its way across the straits and pops up in South Florida, quite a treat for the local birders if you manage to find it!
  5. Eastern wood pewee

    Eastern wood pewee

    Another flycatcher, even more rare for us than the great crested...this one migrates through and I've only managed to spot one once and get photographs!
  6. Great crested flycatcher

    Great crested flycatcher

    Other than eastern phoebes, most flycatchers are fairly uncommon down in south Florida, so it's always a pleasure to see any of them
  7. Acadian flycatcher

    Acadian flycatcher

    A lifer for me, and so far the only one I've ever spotted or photographed. Not necessarily 'rare' as they migrate through South Florida fall and spring, but they don't often stop by in my wetlands areas and I had never seen one before this. Or since!

    Flycatcher: Ash-throated or Great-crested?

    The bird was seen today in North Cape Coral, Florida. An Ash-throated has been reported as seen in the area multiple times by a number of people lately, however Great-crested would be our norm. I don't want to report the wrong bird. Thanks!
  9. Vermilion flycatcher

    Vermilion flycatcher

    A gorgeous little passerine, more associated with the southwestern U.S. and Mexico...every once in a while one pops up in Florida, usually on the gulf coast - even more rarely, one will appear on the east coast, as this one did in 2018 - my first ever sighting of one.

  18. Flycatcher

    Flycatcher

    A small Flycatcher. Possibly a Least Flycatcher? I'm not sure as several varieties are very similar and I don't know them well enough to tell the differences.

  20. Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (Tyrannus forficatus) Preening.
  21. Acadian Flycatcher

    Acadian Flycatcher

    Acadian Flycatcher (Empidonax virescens) At least with this view you can tell that it is an Empidonax flycatcher (lol).
  22. Acadian Flycatcher

    Acadian Flycatcher

    Acadian Flycatcher (Empidonax virescens) An aerial belly view. A view probably not seen very often (lol).

    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (Tyrannus forficatus) with a Trapdoor Spider.
  24. Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

    Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (Tyrannus forficatus)
  25. Acadian Flycatcher

    Acadian Flycatcher

    Acadian Flycatcher (Empidonax virescens) My reasoning for this determination. We have five species of Empidonax flycatchers that migrate through our area: Acadian, Alder, Least, Willow, and Yellow-bellied but only the Acadian spends the summer.
