Adults have olive-brown upperparts, browner on the wings and tail, with whitish underparts; they have a white eye ring, white wing bars, a small bill and a short tail. The breast is washed with olive-grey. The upper part of the bill is grey; the lower part is orangish. At one time, this bird was included with the very similar Willow Flycatcher in a single species, Traill's Flycatcher.

The Flycatcher is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

It is a dark olive gray on the back, with a yellow underside and light gray throat. Its distinctive crest gives it its name, and it has a large bill.

They breed in deciduous and mixed forests in eastern North America. Nests are built inside of tree cavities, using snakeskin or plastic for insulation. In winter months, this species migrates south to Mexico, South America, Florida and Cuba. Diets of the Great Crested Flycatcher consist of fruits and berries, and insects caught mid-flight. More

Pale gray is the scissortail’s predominant color, approaching white on the face and breast. The wings are blackish, the tail black and white. Scarlet “armpits” are mostly concealed while the bird is perched, and a scarlet crown patch is almost always hidden. More

The Great Crested Flycatcher always nests in a cavity—an abandoned woodpecker hole, a hollow tree, or a nest box. If the hole is too deep, the birds will fill it up from the bottom with debris before beginning the nest of twigs. They may add a cast-off snakeskin or a strip of shiny plastic, which is sometimes left hanging outside the cavity. In dry parts of the West the smaller Ash-throated Flycatcher (Myiarchus cinerascens) often nests in a hole in a large cactus. More

I found these birds rather common near the banks of Red river, about the confluence of the Kiamesha. More
