English → English (gcide) Definition: Pyrocephalus rubineus Flycatcher \Fly"catch`er\, n. (Zo["o]l.) One of numerous species of birds that feed upon insects, which they take on the wing. [1913 Webster] Note: The true flycatchers of the Old World are Oscines, and belong to the family Muscicapid[ae], as the spotted flycatcher (Muscicapa grisola). The American flycatchers, or tyrant flycatchers, are Clamatores, and belong to the family Tyrannid[ae], as the kingbird, pewee, crested flycatcher (Myiarchus crinitus), and the vermilion flycatcher or churinche (Pyrocephalus rubineus ). Certain American flycatching warblers of the family Sylvicolid[ae] are also called flycatchers, as the Canadian flycatcher (Sylvania Canadensis ), and the hooded flycatcher (S. mitrata). See Tyrant flycatcher. [1913 Webster] Tyrant \Tyr"ant\ (t[imac]"rant), n. [OE. tirant, tiraunt, tyraunt, OF. tiran, tirant (probably from confusion with the p. pr. of verbs), F. tyran, L. tyrannus, Gr. ty`rannos, originally, an absolute sovereign, but afterwards, a severe or cruel ruler.] 1. An absolute ruler; a sovereign unrestrained by law or constitution; a usurper of sovereignty. [1913 Webster] Note: Free governments [in Greece] having superseded the old hereditary sovereignties (basilei^ai), all who obtained absolute power in a state were called ty`rannoi, tyrants, or rather despots; -- for the term rather regards the irregular way in which the power was gained, whether force or fraud, than the way in which it was exercised, being applied to the mild Pisistratus, but not to the despotic kings of Persia. However, the word soon came to imply reproach, and was then used like our tyrant. --Liddell & Scott. [1913 Webster] 2. Specifically, a monarch, or other ruler or master, who uses power to oppress his subjects; a person who exercises unlawful authority, or lawful authority in an unlawful manner; one who by taxation, injustice, or cruel punishment, or the demand of unreasonable services, imposes burdens and hardships on those under his control, which law and humanity do not authorize, or which the purposes of government do not require; a cruel master; an oppressor. “This false tyrant, this Nero.” --Chaucer. [1913 Webster] Love, to a yielding heart, is a king, but to a resisting, is a tyrant. --Sir P. Sidney. [1913 Webster] 3. (Zo["o]l.) Any one of numerous species of American clamatorial birds belonging to the family Tyrannid[ae]; -- called also tyrant bird. [1913 Webster] Note: These birds are noted for their irritability and pugnacity, and for the courage with which they attack rapacious birds far exceeding them in size and strength. They are mostly plain-colored birds, but often have a bright-colored crown patch. A few species, as the scissorstail, are handsomely colored. The kingbird and pewee are familiar examples. [1913 Webster] Tyrant flycatcher (Zo["o]l.), any one of numerous species of tyrants which have a flattened bill, toothed at the tip, and resemble the true flycatchers in habits. The Acadian flycatcher (Empidonax Acadicus) and the vermilion flycatcher (Pyrocephalus rubineus) are examples. Tyrant shrike (Zo["o]l.), any one of numerous species of American tyrants of the genus Tyrannus having a strong toothed bill and resembling the strikes in habits. The kingbird is an example. [1913 Webster]
