Dusky-capped Flycatcher
Myiarchus tuberculifer
The Dusky-capped Flycatcher (Myiarchus tuberculifer) is a summer resident of mountain canyons in extreme southwestern New Mexico and southeast Arizona. Rarely it occurs in far west Texas. The plaintive, mournful whistled call of this species is a familiar sound when within the range of this bird. It is quite common in parts of Mexico. The first 3 shots here were taken in The Huachuca Mountains, Cochise Co., Arizona, in May, 2008, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens and 1.4X extender.
