A tiny and delicately built songbird with a very short, pointed bill, comparatively long, pointed wings (that reach farther down the tail than in Dusky Flycatchers—this is known as “primary projection”). Hammond’s appear large-eyed, large-headed, and somewhat short-tailed (because of the longer primary projection) than Dusky and Gray Flycatchers.
Larger than a Red-breasted Nuthatch, slightly smaller than a Western Wood-Pewee.sparrow-sized or smaller
