Asian Brown Flycatcher
Big black eyes.
|Scientific name||Muscicapa dauurica|
|English name||Asian Brown Flycatcher|
|Classification details||Passeriformes Muscicapidae|
A small flycatcher whose whole body is gray. Smaller and lighter in color than the shark flycatcher.
The upper part of the body is gray overall, and the belly is uniformly white. The beak is yellow at the base and black at the tip. The jet-black eyes are large with thin white eye rings.
The male sings with a slightly muddy voice such as "chu-chu" and "ju-ju-ju."
They live in forests on flatlands and mountains and eat insects. It moves like a flycatcher jumping out of a branch and catching prey in the air. They do not form flocks and often move alone. Breeding in Japan is done in high altitude broadleaf forests, and forms territory during this time.
It perched on a branch looking up from the forest road in the evening. It looked plain, but the big eyes were cute. It moved to a higher treetop and was looking around. It didn't sing when I was observing, so I was lucky to find it by chance.
