The Streak-necked Flycatcher is distributed in the Andes from Colombia through Ecuador and Peru to Bolivia. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in forest and at forest edges mainly between 1,200 and 2,500 metres.

Like all Mionectes flycatchers it is small with a slender bill and a bull-headed look. They eat fruit as well as insects and occasionally flick their wings. The Streak-headed Flycatcher usually perches upright but sometimes leans forward as in this photo.
