Family Old World Flycatchers
A rare but regular migrant on the islands of western Alaska, apparently more frequent in spring than in fall. Also has reached the Alaska mainland, and there is one winter record for Ontario. Usually stays close to the ground. Active and elusive, often hiding in dense cover.
