Cinnamon flycatcher        Images © Mark A. Chappell

The Neotropics are full of tyrant flycatchers of all sizes and colors.   These attractive little birds are cinnamon flycatchers, a common species in mid-altitude Andean forests.   These were photographed at about 2000 m altitude on the Manu Road in southeastern Peru, and about the same altitude in cloudforest in the mountains above Cali, Colombia.
