    Default Flycatcher from Bali

    2 pictures of the same bird (very poor quality, sorry) from Bali (Indonesia) (in the mountain -1000m-, on the slope of Gunung Agung volcano. August 2009).
    I feel that it's a Flycatcher but I dont know the right one. An Asian Brown Flycatcher? (but there is some rufous/brown on the crown and the wings?)
    Thanks you for your opinion!

    I see nobody has replied to your request for help. I can't help a lot, but I think this might be a Snowy-browed Flycatcher Ficedula hyperythra, though the image has bleached out the upperpart colours making it much paler. my reasons would be the structure - small and 'stocky', the rufous in the wing and tail. It does look a little pale on the chest, but look at this and imagine if it was over-exposed....

    I'd agree with Brian, the image is a bit contrasty but the features shown do suggest Snowy-browed Flycatcher. However, there appears to be only two species of Ficedula flycatchers on the Bali list, Lompobattang Flycatcher Ficedula bonthaina and Rufous-browed Flycatcher Ficedula solitaris. The altitude of the sighting and on the second image, the appearance of a clean throat would suggest it's a 1cy Rufous-browed.
