Most of the small Flycatchers are almost of the same size as this is, colour difference is and feather patterns can also be confusing, leg and bill colours can also be deceiving; but when referred to an expert, it can be identified properly. The female Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher can be confusing to identify, I thought it was a Snowy-browed Flycatcher, but it wasn’t. I can only hope to find all the Flycatchers in Thailand as they are many. The endemics and the migrants are so many to just have, I shall take photographs one bird at a time.

My only consolation in finding this lovely Flycatcher is, it is lovely to watch; the behavior and characteristics of all Flycatchers are almost the same, so when watching and identifying them, it is rather confusing.  My quest to find them all may take a long time, but each one of them will be a great adventure to pursue.
