Myiarchus crinitus
Flycatcher Fly"catch`er, n. (Zo["o]l.) One of numerous species of birds that feed upon insects, which they take on the wing. [1913 Webster]

Note: The true flycatchers of the Old World are Oscines, and belong to the family {Muscicapid[ae]}, as the spotted flycatcher ({Muscicapa grisola}). The American flycatchers, or tyrant flycatchers, are Clamatores, and belong to the family {Tyrannid[ae]}, as the kingbird, pewee, crested flycatcher ({Myiarchus crinitus}), and the vermilion flycatcher or churinche ({Pyrocephalus rubineus}). Certain American flycatching warblers of the family {Sylvicolid[ae]} are also called flycatchers, as the Canadian flycatcher ({Sylvania Canadensis}), and the hooded flycatcher ({S. mitrata}). See {Tyrant flycatcher}. [1913 Webster]
