Dusky Flycatcher


Dusky Flycatchers can be found in the southeast of Alberta along the foothills, mountain parks and Cypress Hills. They prefer the habitat of deciduous woods. The Dusky Flycatcher looks similar to the Hammond’s Flycatcher. The throat is whitish and the breast is gray. the bill is longer than that of the Hammond’s. The best way to identify the Dusky Flycatcher is by its song, which is a clear three part “tsyrup, tsurp, seep.” Similar species include the Hammond’s Flycatcher.
