Featured Species: Common Tody-Flycatcher (Todirostrum cinereum)

The Common Tody-Flycatcher (Todirostrum cinereum) is a very small passerine bird in the tyrant flycatcher family common and widespread species of secondary forest and forest edge; it is distributed from southern Mexico to south to northeastern Argentina, but is absent from much of the Amazon Basin.

Common Tody-Flycatchers have glossy black forecrowns, slate gray hindcrowns, olive upperparts, black wings and bright yellow underparts; the iris usually is yellow, and with a long, flattened, straight black bill.



Common Tody-Flycatchers forage in dense vegetation close to the ground or in the open mid-level canopy of trees. It's usually seen in pairs, making rapid dashing sallies or hovering to pick small arthropods off the vegetation.
