Asian Brown Flycatcher – frugivorous behaviour

posted in: Feeding-plants, uncategorised | 0

Continue to observe the Asian Brown Flycatcher (Muscicapa dauurica) fruit feeding and have numerous observations now. The commonest fruit that I have seen taken is the Blue Mahang (Macaranga heynei) (below). Another reasonably common item is the Common Mahang (Macaranga bancana). But I have also seen it take orange berries from an unknown jungle plant.
