Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A distinctive, rather large flycatcher of tropical and subtropical forest and woodland, heard far more often than seen. Feeds from the forest floor to the canopy; has a habit of strongly flicking its tail up and down while perched. Readily identified by its staring face with orange eyes; stout, slightly hooked pinkish bill; and streaked breast. The bright tawny rump can be hard to see. Loud, strident, whistled song given at any time of day, but especially around dawn.
