Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher

I am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

For this week's wild bird I am sharing another Belize lifer the Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher.  I saw the Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher in few places during our travels in Belize.  It was on my birding tour to the Sittee River that I was able to take these photos of my Belize lifer..



 The Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher can be found from southeastern Arizona to Central America. They have heavy streaking plumage and a yellow belly..a rusty brown and a black eyestripe.



I have also been working on my photo Bird Lifer list officially my list is 434 lifers and here is my : photo Lifer list


I am up to 300.. only 134 more birds and photos to add. 



This was another Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher seen on the day we took the ruins tour in Belize,not the best shot but it shows more of the black eye stripe.

 Thanks for stopping by my post and for all the nice comments.

The bright blue sky made a perfect background for the Flycatcher.

Phil Slade said...

You gave us a very striking flycatcher and some brill shots there Eileen. Flycatchers are a very interesting family of birds, the larger ones especially so because all our European flycatchers are quite small.

Que pássaro bonito!
de cores suaves, mas ele parece
ter um bico e olhar forte!
é a primeira vez que vejo esse pássaro.
Obrigado, por mostrar!

Whoa!!!! We have them here but they are such amazing flycatchers. Very colorful birds with lots of spunky personality. Sound like a dog toy when they call. Congrats on your find. This is one of my favorites.

I loved to read your explanation "streaking plumage and a yellow belly..a rusty brown and a black eyestripe"♡♡♡ And what a big number of list of bird, how wonderful and I admire your accomplishment, Eileen☆☆☆
