Dusky Flycatcher


IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern

A dull flycatcher of western mountains, the Dusky Flycatcher is found in chaparral, streamside thickets, and open brushy areas. It is extremely difficult to tell from Hammond's Flycatcher by appearance alone.

Song has 3 basic elements: a vaguely 2-syllabled "prll-it" rising in frequency, a rough, low-pitched "prrdrrt," and a clear, high-pitched"pseet." Call note a soft "whit."
