Flycatchers

We call the family Tyrannidae, the Tyrant Flycatchers. Birds in this family live only in the New World. There are 425 species in 101 genus categories in total recognised by science, and they are considered the largest family of birds on Earth. I’ve placed the Phainopepla, a silky flycatcher, in this set, even though it is not a member of the tyrant group. Species included here are: Acadian Flycatcher, Alder FlyCatcher, Ash-Throated Flycatcher, Black Phoebe, Brown-Crested Flycatcher, Cassin’s Kingbird, Couch’s Kingbird, Dusky Flycatcher, Dusky-Capped Flycatcher, Eastern KingBird, Eastern Phoebe, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Gray Flycatcher, Great Kiskadee, Hammond’s Flycatcher, Least Flycatcher, Olive-Sided Flycatcher, Pacific-Slope Flycatcher, the aforementioned Phainopepla, Say’s Phoebe, Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher, Sulphur-Bellied Flycatcher, Tropical Kingbird, Vermilion Flycatcher, Western Kingbird, Western Wood-Pewee, Willow Flycatcher, and Yellow-Bellied Flycatcher.
