Dusky Flycatcher


(Empidonax oberholseri)

Dusky Flycatcher is similar in appearance to both Gray Flycatcher and Hammond’s Flycatcher. All three are western birds with similar ranges, but generally favor different habitats although there is some overlap. Differences in song are helpful, but especially helpful in identifying Dusky is its short primary wing projection and particularly its habit of upward tail flicking.
