Least Flycatcher range

The Least Flycatcher is one of the smallest members of the flycatcher family. This small grey-greenish bird is often overlooked while it spends its time seeking out insects in the foliage of the trees. It nests in the central regions of North America. During the winter months, it migrates mainly into Mexico and stays in some of the extreme southern US states. It has been a rare visitor to Cuba.
