Hainan Blue Flycatcher

Late afternoon  I walked the checkpoint road as far as the barrier, best birds by far were two  Hainan Blue Flycatcher just before the checkpoint. Two Claudia Leaf Warblers and a Raddes Warbler were the first i have seen locally this winter. Also present along the road were a single Oriental Pied Hornbill,  2 Blue-eared Barbet, 2 Thick-billed Green Pigeon, 3 Blue-winged Leafbirds, Blue Rock Thrush, 2 Grey-backed Shrike, 3 Brown Shrike, 4 Hill Blue Flycatcher, 8 Taiga Flycatcher, 2 Puff-throated Babbler, 4 Grey Wagtail and 8 Oriental White-eye.

Very little on the move this morning with just 2 Eastern Buzzard, a Black Baza, 8 Spangled Drongo and 3 Ashy Minivet south.

  1. Hi,

    Please, how can you ID Claudia Leaf Warblers from the other splits of Blyth`s complex ? Seems quite tricky, no?
