It might look like a drab bird--and it is. Guide books describe it as "mousy"--and it is. But it is a master at capturing and devouring flying insects. Its drab palette acts as camouflage against the grass, the trees, the sky. Spotted Flycatchers have a vast range but all of them migrate to and winter in sub-Saharan Africa.
This is a bird that is not at all threatened, how refreshing. Almost 8 million pairs exist.
