CommentFlycatchers are often heard before they are seen, which was the case in this instance.I was having a coffee on the porch when I heard that unmistakable call made be this species as they hunt for insects. Camera and tripod in hand, I located the two birds and had taken a few images when to my surprise one of the birds flew straight towards me, landed on one of the tripod legs, hopped from one tripod leg to the other and then continued on hunting for insects. They obviously feel safe in my garden as they have been here every day since then.
