The ferruginous flycatcher (Muscicapa ferruginea) is a species of bird in the family Muscicapidae.
From Khangchendzonga National Park in West Sikkim, India. Found from northeast Indian subcontinent, central China to Taiwan and winters Southeast Asia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. Not readily mistaken for any other species: combination of gray head, orange-brown body, and distinct pale eyering are unique. Perches at mid-height in forest openings, often next to running water, sallying out periodically to snag insects.
Adult has distinctive slaty-grey head, rufescent rump, uppertail-coverts and tail, rusty-rufous fringes on coverts/tertials and rusty-buff breast and flanks. Juvenile resembles adult but has buff streaks on crown, short rusty streaks on upper-mantle and scapulars and darkish scales/mottlings on throat-sides and breast. [Source: Wikipedia].
