An inhabitant of the northern boreal forest, the Yellow-bellied Flycatcher's song is a brief and emphatic "che-lek" that sounds quite similar to the "che-bek" of its more widespread cousin, the Least Flycatcher.

This footage was gathered in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New in early June of 2010. The habitat was a boggy area dominated by Black Spruce and Tamarack.

About

Published on Sep 12, 2013

This bird has been one of the most difficult challenges for me. It has always been difficult for me to find let alone photograph. It's always difficult to ID but when they're migrating it can almost be impossible to conclusively ID. This bird was captured just south of St. John's in Newfoundland in July 2013.
