The empidonax flycatchers are very difficult to tell apart. The safest way to differentiate them is by habitat, range, and voice in the breeding season. Differences due to molt, wear and age make the plumage quite variable. The Buff-breasted Flycatcher is the easiest empidonax to identify. Its orange-buffy breast, small size and bold eye ring separate it from the other species.
