General description.

The Acadian Flycatcher is very similar in appearance to other flycatchers and is best identified by its voice. This bird is most often seen in heavily wooded areas searching for the flying eats that it eats. During breeding season, this bird is monogamous. A pair nests in a tree or shrub and builds a cup shaped nest. The female lays 2-4 white eggs and the pair raises them. A pair raises 2 broods a year. The male Acadian Flycatcher will drive larger birds from breeding territory. This bird is commonly parasitized by the Brown-headed Cowbird. The Acadian Flycatcher is common and its range is expanding to the Northeast.
