"Ash-throated Flycatcher," Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The ash-throated flycatcher is a passerine bird in the tyrant flycatcher family. It breeds in desert scrub, riparian forest, brushy pastures and open woodland from the western United States to central Mexico. It is a short-distance migrant, retreating from most of the U.S. and northern and central Mexico, spending the winter from southern Mexico to Honduras. Adult ash-throated flycatchers are 1920 cm (7.57.9 in) long and weigh 2431 g (0.851.09 oz). The upperparts are olive brown, with a darker head and short crest. The breast is gray and the belly is a very pale yellow. The brown tail feathers and wings have rufous outer webs, and there are two dull wing bars. The sexes are similar.
