    Just saw 2 adult Nuttig’s Flycatchers or Brown crested flycatchers in my backyard in York, PA. Hard to tell which one since they seem very similar in appearance. (6/18/12)

      Any Myiarchus family flycatcher you are seeing in York, PA would almost certainly be a Great Crested Flycatcher. Nutting’s is a Central American species with only a handful of recorded sightings in the US, in Arizona, California, and Big Bend NP in Texas. Brown Crested is a southwestern species rarely seen east of the Mississippi, usually in the winter in Florida, and has never been reported in the middle Atlantic or Northeastern US.
