Hammond's Flycatcher


IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern

A small and unassuming flycatcher of western North America, Hammond's Flycatcher breeds in mature coniferous forests. Hammond's Flycatcher looks very similar to Gray and Dusky flycatchers. All three species overlap in range, but differ in voice and habitat.
