More often found in coastal areas and of the East Coast, the Ash-Throated Flycatcher is a relatively rare medium-sized bird. It is 6.5 inches in length and can be described with pale yellow under parts, brownish to green upper parts, pale wings, a dark and slim bill, and a short bushy chest. It often spends the winter in Mexico and North America and spring and summer in California. They like to live in open woodlands and desert scrubs and are prone to wander. Their nests are often made of dry leaves, manure, and dry grass and are lined with hair and fibers.
The Ash-Throated Flycatcher likes to feed on arthropods and small fruits and sometimes on small reptiles and mammals. They can easily capture insects in wide vegetations and open ground. They also like to hunt for lizards and small snakes. If you’re building a birdhouse for the Ash-Throated Flycatcher, it should be placed above ground to attract the birds more and for them to see it more easily. Put a lot of small insects such as little bugs, beetles, and even small grasshoppers and spiders. You can also incorporate small fruits like berries and slices of oranges in their diet.
