GRAY FLYCATCHER

GRAY FLYCATCHER
GRAY FLYCATCHER

Gray flycatchers are found in western North America. They like to be in sagebrush and juniper areas in the summer and mesquite desert areas in the winter. I found this one on a walk in a pinon-juniper high desert field. Flycatchers get their name because they prey mostly on flying insects, although they will eat fruit. The gray flycatcher will perch low and fly to the ground to pick up insects.
