This migrant adult male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher (Ficedula zanthopygia) was injured on its way back up north (East Russia/China) – had a concussion. Required some hours of rest and then was able to fly well again.
Some images of plumage while in hand. Note the breeding plumage that has developed – the throat and breast that are usually bright lemon-yellow have now become a strong orange-yellow.
