Length: 9 in. (22 cm )
Confined in the summer to mountain canyon forests with sycamore trees, this flycatcher is aggressive and noisy. It eats insects that it catches in the air and fruits. Nesting is in a tree cavity of a sycamore, and breeding begins later than most other birds of the area in late May and early June. The Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher winters as far south as Amazonian South America.

The four-digit banding code is SBFL.
