Flycatchers are one of several families that bathe on the wing, we see vireos doing the same thing. If you set up a misting station they will love it along with the hummers. All you need is a drip irrigation line attached to a garden hose with a mister head on the end of it, they love it, we have two set up at our place. Wilson Cady

We have a Pacific slope FC who bathes this way every afternoon. Very fun to watch
