Birds - Great Crested Flycatcher
Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Tyrannidae


Great Crested Flycatcher, Myiarchus crinitus. The Great Crested Flycatcher spends most of its time in the trees, waiting for insects to fly by. Adults are brown with yellow bellies and reddish brown tailfeathers. Their heads are large. Instead of building their own nests, they utilize tree cavities and even nesting boxes. Neat fact: they like to weave snake-skin or plastic into the lining of their nests. Photographed in a meadow and at Roe Park in Leawood, KS and off of the Indian Creek Trail in Johnson County, KS.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
