A fairly large flycatcher with large hooked bill. Brownish with paler gray throat, pale yellow belly, and rufous edges on flight feathers and tail. Similar to Ash-throated Flycatcher but has larger bill and different voice. They often take over abandoned woodpeckers nests and sometimes nest in artificial sites such as birdhouses, drainpipes, or hollow fence posts. They arrive in the Tucson area, from Mexico, in late April–early May. In fall, they generally depart in August, and are rare after mid-September.
