|Brown-crested Flycatcher (Myiarchus tyrannulus)
(aka Wied's Crested Flycatcher)
It's nice to find a Myiarchus flycatcher that is relatively easy to identify visually. The Brown-crested is noted for the rufous on its tail and its primaries as well as its brown crest. It usually shows pink at the base of the lower mandible as in this case.
It prefers semi-open and open areas such as savanna and cerrado.
|It is found in south west USA and Mexico as well as north west Colombia round to northern Argentina and Bolivia/Peru but is missing in large parts of central Amazonia.|
