Streaked Flycatcher (Myiodynastes maculatus)

Streaked Flycatcher is a widespread inhabitant of evergreen and open second growth forest from southeastern Mexico south to Argentina. As its name implies, the Streaked Flycatcher has streaking across most of its back and underparts, along with a cinnamon tail and crown. These noisy flycatchers often are seen sallying for insects from a perch or gleaning insects and berries from canopy foliage. Streaked Flycatcher is resident in much of its wide range, but both the northernmost and southernmost breeding populations are migratory. Birds that breed from Mexico south to Honduras migrate south to Panama and northern South America, while populations that nest in southern South America migrate north to Colombia and northern South America after the breeding season.
