This small blue-grey flycatcher might pass you by if you were not looking about you carefully.

It is a delightful little bird with an erect posture, and prefers the edges of riverine forests as well as open broad-leaved woodland.

The Ashy Flycatcher is very active, making sallying flights to catch insects and small vertebrates, returning to a regular perch – as you can tell from this ‘well-marked’ perch!

Their diet consists of a variety of insects such as beetles, flies, grasshoppers, butterflies, and termites as well as fruit.

  1. What a sweet little bird. I love flycatchers. They are always so busy it seems. I find them being very difficult to tell apart unless they are large and have some distinctive markings.
