Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet

Camptostoma imberbe

Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet
copyright Herbert Clarke
Length: 5 in. (11 cm)
An inconspicuous and drab bird, this flycatcher would pass unnoticed if not for its ringing calls. It is restricted to trees and vegetation in desert riparian areas where it feeds on insects and a few fruits by gleaning them from vegetation. The nest is placed on a limb and is a globular array of plant fibers with an entrance hole on the side. The four-digit banding code is NBTY.
