Males in this genus look ferocious with their black eye masks, which reflects their macho personality

Male and female flycatchers have unique appearances that are pretty dissimilar to each other, which helps to identify between the sexes with no trouble. The male is slightly larger with vivid plumage (blackish upper parts and upper parts in shades of red) compared to the female’s dull coloration (brownish with lighter underparts).

These sit-and-wait predators are known for composure as they patiently wait for the food to arrive nearby. The aggressive territorial behavior makes them look fierce and might even scare away some larger predators. The flycatchers spare no effort in trying to impress females during courtship. Scientists are still trying to understand the biology of these newfound birds. Therefore, we might discover some exciting revelations about these flycatchers soon.
