Sulphur-Bellied Flycatcher

Myiodynastes luteiventris
Range Map

Rarely seen in the US, the Sulphur-Bellied Flycatcher is a summer resident in Mexico and northern Central America, but is a regular summer visitor to the Huachuca Mountain’s broad-leaf forest canyons in southeastern Arizona.

When the breeding season is over, these birds migrate to South America to stay on the on the eastern slopes of the Andes range in the upper Amazon basin.

Most references I found confess that this species is “under-studied”. Taxonomists regard the Sulphur-Bellied Flycatcher s monotypic (i.e. there are no subspecies).

My experience with these birds is limited to a few meetings on the Fort Huachuca military base in Garden Canyon near Sierra Vista Arizona. I hope to spend more time with these birds in the future.
