RED-BREASTED FLY­CATCHER

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

A scarce pas­sage bird, the Red-breasted Fly­catcher is a prize find for mi­grant seek­ers. They are small, usu­ally buff and brown, rather plain fly­catch­ers with a strik­ing black-and-white tail (black with white bases at the side). Most lack the orange breast/throat of adult males. They can be quite elu­sive birds, dis­ap­pear­ing in trees, even when you know they are in there. So, you will need pa­tience as well as luck and tim­ing.
