August 5, 2016 – Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva)

These small old world flycatchers are found in northwestern, central, and eastern Europe, and parts of Russia and the Middle East. They migrate to Pakistan and India and have also been introduced to northwest Africa. Spending most of their time in trees, they feed mainly on insects caught in flight or plucked off of foliage, along with some fruit. The females build the nests and incubate the eggs, while the males gather food. Both parents feed the chicks.
