This Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher in St. John’s on October 8, 1993 marks the only record for Newfoundland and one of very few records for Canada or the northeast.

Status: Very Rare (< 5 records)

Origins: Breeds predominantly in Mexico and Central America, as well as the southeast corner of Arizona, wintering mostly in South America. It is a rare vagrant elsewhere in North America, exceptionally so in Canada. There are just a handful of records for the northeast, including one each for New Brunswick and Ontario.

Record Details: One record for Newfoundland – one of our most bizarre and unexpected – when one was discovered near Signal Hill, St. John’s on October 8, 1993.
