Great Crested Flycatcher, Myiarchus crinitus

Great Crested Flycatcher
The Great Crested is the only of the four Myiarchus flycatchers that would normally be found in the northeast, lessening the identification
challenges presented by the group in parts of the west. The bright underpart yellow shown above is characteristic of the species, as are the
broad white tertial linings shown in the back view of the same bird below.

Great Crested Flycatcher
This bird appears to be just fledged, with complete fresh juvenal wing and tail feathers,
but still showing remnants of nestling down on its head and nape, and a nestling's bright-colored
gape lining at the corner of its mouth.
As with the adult bird shown above, the broad white
tertial linings identify the species, the expected Myiarchus in southern Ontario.
