Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small bicolored flycatcher, uniform blackish above with an apricot throat and breast. On Buru, orange restricted to throat and breast, and belly is white. Elsewhere, underparts are entirely orange. Found in understory, perching low, within forests of lowlands and foothills, singly or in pairs that join mixed-species flocks. Confined to the South Moluccas. Distinguished from Snowy-browed Flycatcher by absense of facial markings. Gives a high-pitched song, “tsi-tsi-tsew-tsew-twew,” that rises at start and descends at end. Also gives harsh, metallic “tchik” notes and mournful whistles, “tsew-tsew-tsew.”
