Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Burly brownish flycatcher with a clean white throat, a warm bib, and a faintly hooked dark bill. Overall plainness and structure separate it from female “blue flycatchers” and migrant “brown flycatchers”. Gray-chested Jungle-Flycatcher has more evident gray wash on the head, overall darker upperparts, and lack of warm tones in the tail; its breast band is thicker overall, and is generally more gray-toned (though it can sometimes appear brownish). Rufous-tailed Jungle-Flycatcher is more slender and has a brighter rufous tail than Fulvous-chested; it is found at higher elevations where the two overlap in range. A bird of lowland forests and forest edges, typically in drier habitat. Flycatches from mid-level perches and sings an indescribably beautiful cascading series of high jingling notes.
