Breeding / Nesting:
They breed in cultivation, pasture, and open woodland with some trees, building a large roofed nest from stems and in a bush, tree or on a building.
The nest is often constructed near a wasp, bee or ant nest, or the nest of another tyrant flycatcher,. The nest site is often near or over water.
The typical clutch is two to four brown or lilac-blotched cream or white eggs, laid between February and June.
The adult Myiozetetes flycatchers are 16-18 cm long and weighs 24-30 g.
The upperparts are olive-brown, and the wings and tail are brown with only faint rufous fringes. The underparts are yellow and the throat is white.
Young birds lack the red-orange crown stripe of the adult, and have chestnut fringes to the wing and tail feathers.
Diet / Feeding:
Myiozetetes flycatchers sally out from an open perch in a tree to catch insects in flight. They sometimes hover to take small berries.
