SPECIES INFO

The Chapada Flycatcher (Suiriri islerorum) is a species of bird in the Tyrannidae family, the tyrant flycatchers. It is found in the cerrado of south-central Brazil and adjacent far eastern Bolivia. While currently considered to be of least concern by BirdLife International, evidence suggests that it, at least locally, has declined drastically, and perhaps warrants an uplisting.

It closely resembles the Suiriri Flycatcher of the subspecies affinis, and was included within it until being described in 2001. Compared to it, the Chapada Flycatcher has a broader pale tail-tip, a slightly shorter bill, and a different voice. It also has a distinctive wing-lifting display, which is lacking in the Suiriri Flycatcher.
