Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A slim, cool-gray flycatcher with an upright posture, a white eye-ring broken by a dark stripe through the eye, and a short pale eyebrow. Individuals, pairs, and small groups prefer forest edge, dense woodland, and plantations, where they may join mixed-species flocks foraging in the mid-canopy. The species makes sallying flights to catch insects and small vertebrates, returning to a regular perch. The Ashy Flycatcher lacks the white outer tail feathers and horizontal posture of the otherwise similar Gray-Tit Flycatcher.
