Autumn Flycatchers

Asian Brown Flycatcher
A collection of flycatchers are moving through Niigata at the moment. Apparently I missed a Japanese Paradise Flycatcher along with five Blue-and-white Flycatchers at Junsai-ike on Saturday. (was shown a nice pic of the former by a regular birder to Junsai-ike). The best I could do yesterday were these Asian Brown and Grey-streaked Flycatchers (at Junsai-ike, October 3) Not dazzling in colour but delightful little birds nonetheless. Below: four more views of an Asian Brown Flycatcher at Junsai-ike.





....and, below, three shots of a Grey-streaked Flycatcher, also at Junsai-ike (October 3, 2010)
