Western Flycatcher – The Return

Western Flycatcher

The Return The sprightly little Western Flycatcher is a spirited species that returns to our property to breed each spring. There is another aspect to this flycatcher ‘returning’, though. It has been placed back [returned] to its original single-species status [Western Flycatcher] after being split into two species [in 1989]: the Cordilleran and the Pacific-slope Flycatchers.
