    Description

    The willow flycatcher (Empidonax traillii) is a Neotropical migrant that breeds in North America, but winters in Central and northern South America. Little specific information is known about migration and wintering ecology of the southwestern willow flycatcher (E. t. extimus) (Yong and Finch 1997). Our report applies principally to the species as a whole and not just to the endangered subspecies. In this chapter, we describe timing of migration, migration routes, stopover behavior and ecology, winter distribution, and migration and winter habitats of the willow flycatcher species complex. We also explore the topic of possible threats to migrating and wintering flycatchers associated with habitat loss and pesticide use.
