True to its name, the Boat-billed Flycatcher (Megarynchus pitangua) has a broad and heavy black bill which gives this species its English and generic names, and is the best distinction from the similar Great Kiskadee, which also has more rufous tail and wings, and lacks the olive tone to the upperparts. The boat-billed flycatcher is found at forest edges and semi-open areas with large trees. They perch high on the interior branches of large open trees. They do not remain long in any single location and wander widely in pairs or in family groups of three to five. It breeds in open woodland with some tall trees from Mexico south through Central America to Bolivia and Argentina, and on Trinidad.
