The Great Crested Flycatcher is one of the largest members of the flycatcher family that is seen in North America. This flycatcher is recognized by its very loud calls, which can be heard from a far distance. These are cavity nesting birds, who need older forest-type trees to raise their young. These large flycatchers spend their winter months in the southern tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
