Spotted Flycatcher

I know, it's not exactly a colorful bird and the plumage is definitely not impressive, but bird watchers love them and so do I. Probably because they have such a curious behavior and are so easy to spot. Usually hunting from a conspicuous perch, they sally after passing insects and quickly return to the same perch. Always to the same perch. They're predictable.

Here, in southwestern Europe, they're only seen around for a short period of time. They arrive in late August and in a couple of months they go away to winter in Africa. But while they're here, I'll keep watching and shooting them, so expect more pictures. :)
