Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher (Male)

30th & 31st July 2016, Kemensah, Selangor 

Local Name:  Sambar Kelicap Ranting

Scientific Name: Cyornis tickelliae

Equipment: Nikon 1 V3 + Nikkor AFS-VR 400mm f/2.8 ED-VR

These could be images of two different birds.






This bird  puzzles me. She displays bluish feathers on her flanks and the orange-rufous feather on the breast extends down her flanks. Usually Tickell’s Blue Flycatchers have a sharp demarcation of the orange-rufous and the white belly.
