Dusky-Capped FlyCatcher

Myiarchus tuberculifer

I first met this bird at the Arivaca Cienega. It looks very much like the Ash-Throated Flycatcher, but sounds very different. Birds in the genus Myiarchus nest in cavities. This bird’s normal range is from northern South America, Central America and Mexico, and while it has been recorded further north, southeast Arizona and southwestern New Mexico are as far north as they are normally found in spring and summer.
