Tickell’s–Blue Flycatchers

19th June 2011, Kemensah, Selangor


It was fairly quiet in Kemensah, not many birds were out and about. Then my luck changed when  a pair of Tickell’s blue flycatchers  flew onto a nearby bamboo tree. I’ve never photographed  a pair in one frame before so this  was a great opportunity not to be missed. The male ( right) has a  darker blue plumage than the female and a blackish patch around the  face.




The male giving me the eye!




The straight/ clear cut orange colour on the breast is the distinctive feature of this flycatcher.
