Asian Brown Flycatcher Feeding

Although they are called flycatcher, that doesn't means they will only catch flies and nothing else. This Asian Brown Flycatcher (Muscicapa dauurica) got a big prey, not a fly but a moth.
To stop the prey from struggling, the flycatcher hit it against the tree branch.
When the moth no longer move, the flycatcher put it down to take a rest.
It then move over to the other side, pick up the moth and realign it so that is easier to swallow.
Yes! It swallow the whole moth! Another satisfiying meal for this flycatcher.


  1. Good point and good catch of action on your part. Thank you for sharing.

    Wishing you happy holiday season filled with love and peace.

    I will see you next year!
