We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
THe Bran-colored Flycatcher is a small member of the Tyrannidae family that is often found near water. We sometimes see this species on the edges of our largest woods and it is relatively tame.
It measures about 12cm and has a predominantly ginger coloured back and head with slightly darker wings. Most noticeable are the 2 buffy wing bars. Its underparts are pale with strong stripes and the bill is small, narrow and pointed.
Male and female are similar
