No.554 Asian Brown Flycatcher Muscicapa dauurica

L=13cm

Rank : 3
Summer Visitor
Common summer visitor who migrates to Asakawa River basin from end-April to May every year. Since the species is observed until the time when certain kinds of falcons migrate to the south (latter half of September to first-half of October), this may also be the time for the species to migrate southward. From the fact that fledglings are observed in Mt.Takao and Mt.Jimba, this area is believed to be one of their breeding grounds.
