Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small and nondescript flycatcher that is nowhere near as exciting-looking as the name suggests. Generally found in large bamboo thickets, but can also occur in other viney tangles in forest gaps and edges. Overall dingy olive upperparts and faintly streaked brownish underparts are fairly distinctive; most similar species in range are either yellower or grayer, not brownish. Most often found by its voice, a short series of hollow “pip” notes.
