[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Narcissus Flycatcher (Female)- Ficedula narcissina

This shot was taken in failing light around 1830 hrs under heavy canopy cover. This was not my target bird but this one is still a lifer for me.

This is a northern winter migrant and reportedly scarce during this season. It is simply amazing to see these small birds make the passage year in year out from the far northern regions.
