- The Buff-breasted Flycatcher may benefit by periodic forest fires. Fire may open new habitat for this species by clearing dense undergrowth, which inhibits foraging.
Mountain canyons with pines and scrubby undergrowth.
Takes insects on the wing or from the ground; perches on dead branches and twigs between forays.
Listed as "state endangered" in Arizona because of small population size.
