May 17, 2016 – Yellow-rumped Flycatcher, Tricoloured Flycatcher, or Korean Flycatcher (Ficedula zanthopygia)

These Old World flycatchers breed in eastern Asia and winter in South and Southeast Asia. Their diet is made up of small invertebrates and fruits. Females build cup-shaped nests of moss, dry grass, and plant fibers on branches or in tree cavities. Previously considered the same species as Narcissus Flycatchers, the two may sometimes interbreed. They sing a low whistling song, continuing to sing into the fall and early winter.
