Also known as the Black-fronted Tody-flycatcher, the common tody-flycatcher is a small species of tyrant flycatcher (Tyrannidae) that ranges from southern Mexico to northwestern Peru, eastern Bolivia and southern Brazil. Common tody-flycatchers typically inhabit forests, woodlands, gardens, plantations and arid areas and will feed on small arthropods by quickly picking them off vegetation.
