Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small flycatcher with a rufous throat, a white belly, and dark gray upperparts and head. Female is duller below, with a pale line between bill and eye and a dark brown back, wings, and rump. Singles or pairs inhabit dense forest understory of lowlands and hills. Restricted to Sulawesi. Differs from the larger Sulawesi Blue Flycatcher in its white belly and rufous chin. Absence of white eyebrow and darker upperside separate it from Snowy-browed Flycatcher. Gray head and absence of orange between bill and eye distinguish it from Lompobattang Flycatcher. Song is a very thin, high-pitched whistle, “tsee-tsoo” or “tsee-tsoo-tsee.” Also gives chattering calls.
