March 14, 2016 – Narcissus Flycatcher (Ficedula narcissina)

These Old World Flycatchers are found in parts of China, Japan, and Southeast Asia, including the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Borneo, as well as Sakhalin, a Russian island. They eat small invertebrates, including caterpillars and some fruits, making short flights from a perch to hunt and returning to the same perch to eat. Nesting in cavities, they use sedges, leaves, and plant fibers to build their cup-shaped nests. Females do most of the incubation, but both parents feed the chicks.
