Spotted Flyspotter

Muscicapa striata

Description:

I have only see a fleeting glance of these Spotted Flycatchers in our garden here in Turkey, in the last few days, so I am assuming they are passing through on their migration. I noticed them because of the way they fly from the branch of the tree, dart about in the air, and then returned to the same branch. Which I have since read is how they catch bugs to eat. Their distinguishing features appear to be the brown markings on their chest and long thin tail, which when perched hangs down.
