Figure 2. Dorsal view of tail (Ash-throated Flycatcher). Left hand side closed, as tail is typically arranged when bird is perched; right hand side slightly spread showing pattern of rufous inner webs. Rectrices #2, #5, and #6 illustrated to show patterns of individual feathers. Note pale outer web on R6 compared to R5 and R2. For all illustrations of tails (Figs. 2, 3, 4, 7, 8), dark (cross-hatched) areas represent dark brown, and pale areas generally represent rufous.
