Bran-coloured Flycatcher

This species is found in open forests and secondary growth. The deep cup nest is made of stems and bark and lined with fine plant fibers; it is suspended by the rim from a side branch low in a tree. The typical clutch is two cream-colored eggs with a rufous wreath. The female incubates for 17 days with a further 15-17 to fledging. This species is parasitized by the Shiny Cowbird.

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

Also look for the distinct race of Bran-coloured Flycatcher in the scrub. Higher up the habitat gets more dry and there are stands of cactus. Cactus Canastero, Peruvian Sheartail, Great Inca-finch and Scarlet-fronted Parakeets occur here. Higher up there are some patches of polylepis and a new set of birds. Rusty-crowned Tit-spinetail, Black Metaltail and Andean Parakeet are among some of the inhabitants. Even higher up you are in the puna zone and the lakes here holds lots of wetland birds like ducks and Andean Geese. More
