INTERESTING FACTS

The 15 species of this family were once all thought to be the same as the first that were discovered in Acadia, or present day Nova Scotia. Differences in range, voice and habit eventually identified them as separate species. Ironically the Acadian Flycatcher was the name given to the southern most species; it doesn’t visit the northeast coast of America.
The Acadian Flycatcher is an excellent flier, it is extremely maneuverable, able to hover and can even fly backward.
They are a common host to the Brown-headed Cowbird, which lays its eggs in other birds' nests. However only 16% of cowbird young in Acadian Flycatcher nests fledge successfully.
A group of flycatchers has many collective nouns, including an "outfield", "swatting", "zapper", and "zipper" of flycatchers.

The Acadian Flycatcher is a wide ranging bird that is native to numerous areas in North America as well as South America. This species of bird has been found as far north as Canada and as far south as Panama, reaching a range up to 3 million square kilometers. The global population of the Acadian Flycatcher is estimated to be nearly 5 million individual birds. Due to the fact that the population of this species is currently so high, at the current time this species is not considered to be nearing possible population decline and has a Least Concern evaluation.
