A group of flycatchers has many collective nouns, including an "outfield", "swatting", "zapper", and "zipper" of flycatchers.

The Dusky-capped Flycatcher has a large range, estimated globally at 11,000,000 square kilometers. It is native to Mexico and the United States as well as many of the nations of Central and South America and prefers forest and wetlands ecosystems, though it has been known to reside in plantations and degraded former forests. The global population of this bird is estimated to be between 5,000,000 and 50,000,000 individuals and it does not appear to meet population decline criteria that would necessitate inclusion on the IUCN Red List. The current evaluation status of the Dusky-capped Flycatcher is Least Concern.
