Lenin Park, Hanoi

Hi all,

Mid-day stroll in the toilet area of the Lenin Park.
I have finally catched a glimpse of our current star, the Brown-chested Jungle Flycatcher. Probably the one seen by Falk and Simon 2 days ago (I can not imagine it's a new one, but why not). It was perched ABOVE the toilets - with stunning views of mozzies armada below -, motionless and remained like this a rather long time, until I decided to approach it.

Its relative apathy contrasted with the big activity of some other birds around : 1 Dark-sided Fly, 1 Asian-brown Fly, 1 Asian Paradise Fly, 1 Taiga Fly, 1 Seicercus Warbler (Grey-crowned/Bianchi's ?, still no wing-bar...), 1 probable Eastern crowned Warbler + some other Phyllos non ID.

  1. Congrats to your Jungle Fly!
    The behaviour you noticed seems very typical, we've also seen that in the other birds... moving quite slowly
    Also interesting how the Taiga Flys appear everywhere just within the same day or two..
