The Yellow-browed Tyrant is a common inhabitant of pastureland, forest edge and scrubland in Venezuela and from Central Brazil south to Argentina. The male Yellow-browed Tyrant is greyish-olive above, with a bright yellow supercilia and underparts and a dusky black tail and wings. Females are paler overall and have olive mixed in with the yellow on the breast. A quiet flycatcher, the Yellow-browed Tyrant is often encountered perched singly on low vegetation. Yellow-browed Tyrants capture their insect prey by making aerial sallies or gleaning from foliage and bark. Yellow-browed Tyrants are austral migrants that move from their southern breeding grounds to areas closer to the equator.
