Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large, long-tailed, very plain flycatcher. Note the grayish underparts and unstreaked crown. Found in moist savanna and broadleaved woodland, including miombo. Sits in the midstory for long periods, occasionally flying out to grab an insect on the wing or on the ground. Call is a dry “cheeyp”, and song is a quick, scrambled series of similar notes. Unlike Marico Flycatcher, has dusky underparts, and unlike Grayish Flycatcher, has an unstreaked crown.
