Dusky-capped Flycatcher - Myiarchus tuberculifer
Dusky-capped flycatchers are 5.7 inches in length. They have brownish-olive upperparts, a pale yellow belly, and a pale gray throat and breast. They have a long, thin black bill and a brown tail. Males and females look alike.
The dusky-capped flycatcher is found from southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico south into South America.
Birds in the northern parts this range may migrate south in the winter.
The dusky-capped flycatcher is found in oak-pine woodlands and thickets and river canyons.
Dusky-capped flycatchers primarily eat insects and some fruits and berries.
The female dusky-capped flycatcher lays 4-5 eggs in a tree cavity. The chicks hatch in two weeks and fledge when they are two weeks old.
Dusky-capped flycatchers can be identified by their long, mournful and repeated "wheeeuu" call.
