Pacific Coast Flycatcher

©2014 Steve BorichevskyThis is one of my “comfort birds”. Once the Pacific Coast Flycatcher and the Cordilleran Flycatcher were considered one species. They form two distinct populations in the west.

When I was living in the mountains just out side of Boulder, Colorado, each year I had a pair of “Western Flycatchers” nest under my deck. I would be greeted in the morning with a sharp seeet call from outside my window.

Time moves on and the species are split and I no longer live in my happy place.
