This southwestern flycatcher is known from B.C. only from two well-documented sight records from the Creston Valley in the southeastern interior. Despite its abundance in the southwestern United States, this flycatcher rarely wanders into the Pacific Northwest and, when it does, it is typically found in coastal localities (for example, all Washington records are from the coast).
