Brief Summary

Read full entry


This shy, secretive bird is easily overlooked and little is known about its biology. Records do exist of this species foraging in dense tangled undergrowth in vines, rattan and climbing bamboo, rarely more than 10 metres from the ground (2). The diet is not well understood but, as its name suggests, the Palawan flycatcher is known to feed on insects and other small invertebrates (2) (4). The breeding season is thought to last from May to at least September, possibly later, but no other information on this species' reproductive biology is available (2) (4).
