Genus Tolmomyias


Yellow-margined Flycatcher - There are significant differences between the populations east and west of the Andes, leading to suggestions that the two should be regarded as separate species, in which case the population west of the Andes retains the English name Yellow-margined Flatbill but with the scientific name T. flavotectus, while the Amazonian population retains the scientific name T. assimilis but with the English name Zimmer's Flatbill .


Yellow-breasted Flycatcher - This species is found in the upper levels of forests, secondary growth and the edges of mangrove swamps. The bottle nest is made of plant fibre and suspended from a branch, usually near a wasp nest, which presumably provides some protection from predators. The typical clutch is two or three creamy white eggs, which are marked with violet, mostly at the larger end. Incubation by the female is 17 days to hatching.


Grey-crowned Flycatcher - The Grey-crowned Flatbill or Grey-crowned Flycatcher is a species of bird in the Tyrannidae family. It is found in humid forest in the Amazon and Atlantic Forest in South America. It closely resembles the Yellow-margined and Yellow-olive Flatbills, but its lower mandible is dark with a pale base.

Yellow-olive Flycatcher - The Yellow-olive Flatbill or Yellow-olive Flycatcher is a species of bird in the Tyrannidae family. It is found in tropical and subtopical forest and woodland in Central and South America, but over its range there are significant variations in plumage, iris-colour and voice, leading to speculations that more than one species is involved. Its plumage is overall greenish-yellow, the lores are whitish, the crown is often greyish and some subspecies have a dusky patch on the auriculars. The flat bill is black above and pale pinkish or greyish below; similar to the Yellow-margined Flatbill, but unlike the Grey-crowned Flatbill.


Orange-eyed flycatcher - The binomial commemorates the American ornithologist Melvin Alvah Traylor Jr..
