AcadianFlycatcher

July 28, 2016 – Acadian Flycatcher (Empidonax virescens)

Breeding in the eastern United States, these flycatchers winter in southern Central America and northern South America. They eat insects and arthropods, usually plucking them from leaves or catching them in flight. Their nests are shallow cups held together by spiderwebs and built in the forks of small tree branches. They have been seen bathing by flying into water chest first, then landing on a perch to preen.
