is this a brown crested flycatcher?

Recommended Posts

Seen today in southern Platte County, Missouri. Never seen it around here before. Looks like the pictures for the brown crested flycatcher but the geographic area is wrong. Thanks for any help.

Looks to yellow below to be a brown-crested. My guess would be Great-crested.

Thanks, Avery. I think you're right. And the range for the great crested is far larger than the brown crested which makes more sense.

Definetly a Great-Creasted. Much brighter yellow, a darker throat
