    Default Possible Taiga Flycatcher in Israel

    Yet another intriguing flycatcher in Israel:
    This morning Darren Burns caught a potential 1cy Taiga Flycatcher, and I hurried to see it. It shows some strong features for taiga (uppertail coverts, bill pattern, breast pattern) but is not a classic, cold-grey individual. Unfortunately it was not heard calling.

    There have been two previous records in Israel, both are still under ciculation by the IRDC: one in April 2008 (by myself), and another in May 2011.

    For more images and full discussion please visit my blog.

    Comments are very welcome.

    Yoav Perlman, Israel.
