Great Crested Flycatcher Myiarchus crinitus

Aves > Passeriformes > Tyrannidae

A large member of the flycatcher family with the preferred habitat of forests.

Difficult to spot and identify because this species prefers to stay in the crown of large trees. Yellow breast, grey throat and white stripes on the wings.

Best in Spring upon arrival. The species is then also easier to identify because of its call. Places like Belvédère Outremont or Park Mont-Royal are good options.
