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.

Comments are very welcome.
