Family Tyrant Flycatchers
This native of the western Caribbean was first found in our area in central Alabama, where it has never occurred again. Since the early 1980s, however, La Sagra's Flycatcher has appeared several times in southeastern Florida, probably having strayed across the narrow gap from the Bahamas.
