Scientific Name: Empidonax traillii extimus
Status: E, CH
A small diurnal bird, the flycatcher is distinguishable by its brownish-olive upperparts, a whitish throat that contrasts with the pale olive breast, a pale yellow belly, and two light wing bars; generally lacks a conspicuous eye ring; as in other flycatchers, the bill is depressed and wide at the base (NGS 1983).
It eats mainly insects caught in flight, sometimes gleans insects from foliage; occasionally eats berries. In breeding range, forages within and occasionally above dense riparian vegetation.
Nesting occurs usually from early June through the end of July, peak in mid-June; sometimes may lay eggs as early as late May and typically raises one brood per year.
