(Swainson, 1827)

The pine flycatcher (Empidonax affinis) is a species of bird in the family Tyrannidae, the tyrant flycatchers. It is found in the montane tropical and subtropical coniferous forests of Mexico and southwestern Guatemala.[2] A vagrant bird found in the Santa Rita Mountains, Arizona, in late May 2016 is the first record north of Mexico.[3] (An erroneous 2009 record from Choke Canyon State Park in southern Texas [4] was later shown to be a misidentified Least Flycatcher.)[5]
