    Ash-throated Flycatcher Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      This medium-sized flycatcher is long and slender with a long tail. Its head is slightly peaked at the back, making it look rather large headed for its size. It has a medium-sized bill that is thicker than phoebes and Empidonax flycatchers, but smaller than kingbirds.

      Relative Size

      Larger than a Western Bluebird, smaller than an American Robin.
