Dark-sided Flycatcher (Muscicapa sibirica)
Date taken : 23 Oct'14, Zone B
I am astonished by the loyalty of this bird. It is my first sighting at Kambatik Park, a few days ago. Today she was again at the same perch the last time I met her. Is she trying to make me her friend? The three times I met her she repeatedly moved about three or four low perches at Zone B around me. Three times I went there in the morning she would be there as if we have fixed our appointment time. Upon checking the literature and pictures I am convinced that the bird is the Dark-sided Flycatcher . It is a winter visitor to the tropics from Northern and Central Asia (Himalayas and Yunnan). It seemed a playful and lively bird.
