Great Crested Flycatcher is a large flycatcher with a crest, not a flycatcher with a large crest. "Great-crested" would be a compound modifier that work together to modify "flycatcher," whereas "Great Crested" are independent modifiers that modify "flycatcher" separately from each other. The best contrary example is "Brown-crested Flycatcher" as it is a flycatcher with a brown crest.
