She looks like a Dark-Sided Flycatcher. Asian Brown?
That is so cheered me up!Flycatchers are my favourite birds. The one coming to the UK is the Spotted variety. I always look our for them in April/May and am very disappointed if they miss out a year.They are so alert and I love seeing them on the phone line thru the garden ( the one carrying this message and at the moment laden with 4 inches of snow)
Hello madibirder,nice pictures,and I look in all my books.I think it’s a Asian Brown Flycatcher (dauurica) Sambar Asian.The bill is not 100 % black.That is what I see in A field guide West Malaysia and Singapore( Allen Jeyarajasingam ).~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~A Dark-Sided Flycatcher ( sibirica ) Sambar Siberia have a 100 % black bill.But that’s my opinion !?!Thes birds have sometimes strange colors,and so on.And then it is difficult.Best regards from Frits in Holland
Madi, looks like a Dark-sided Fly to me. Good shots...
The bill looks like Asian Brown.Oh.. maybe mix species. ;)Anyway nicely captured.
Thanks guys. Looks like a split decision.
