Zappey’s Flycatcher 

posted in: birds, Identification | 0

The lack of a glossy black on throat, breast, ear-coverts and lores of this male supports Zappey’s Flycatcher (Cyanoptila cumatilis) over the Blue-and-white Flycatcher (Cyanoptila cyanomelana) (no contrast between these areas). For more information see:
