How to Identify Flycatchers with Cin-Ty Lee & Andrew Birch

April 6, 2023

Birders have long considered the tyrant flycatchers, in particular the Empidonax species and Pewees to be one of the most difficult identification concerns in North America. Author Cin-Ty Lee and illustrator Andrew Birch seek to calm the fears of frustrated birders across the ABA Area with their new Field Guide to North American Flycatchers: Empidonax and Pewees, out just in time for spring migration. They join host Nate Swick to talk about what birders need to know about this group of birds.

Also, join us for an ABA Community Weekend! Our first one is in Toronto, Ontario later this month!
