The flycatchers found in the park belong to the family Tyrannidae, or New World flycatchers (versus Old Word flycatchers in family Muscicapidae). Flycatchers tend to be drab in color and hard to distinguish between species. Flycatchers perch on branches to spot insects, then dart out to catch them in the air.
