1. Description

Body weight 13 - 14 g. The adult male is characterized by black and white color. It differs from the male white-collar flycatcher with a semi-collar interrupted at the back of the head, a small frontal spot sometimes divided in the middle, like in a pied flycatcher, a darker loin, a wide white border along the extreme tail feathers and white spots at the base of all tail feathers, except for the middle pair. The male has more white plumage on the tail, in contrast to the male pied flycatcher. The spreading tail with its color resembles the tail of a small flycatcher. The female is as light as the female of the white collar flycatcher.

The adult female has the same coloration as the female white-collar flycatcher, but in the forehead in some individuals there is a slight enlightenment. White or light buffy color at the base of primary flight feathers appears on the outer webs with 3-5 feathers, on the inner ones from 2, 3 or 5. Adult birds of both sexes differ from the pied flycatcher and white-collar flycatcher as well as their hybrids by the presence of an additional white stripes on the wing, which runs along the tops of the middle coverts.

Birds in juvenile plumage are very similar to white-necked flycatchers of the corresponding age.

2. Voice

The song is something in between the songs of the pied flycatcher and the white-collar flycatcher - in its structure it is closer to the first, and in high whistling key - to the second. The urges and signals of anxiety - "tyuyup", are somewhat lower than those of other species of the genus, and resemble those of the chiffchaff.

3. Habitat and status

"Replaces" closely related species of variegated flycatchers in the south and east of the Balkan Peninsula, on the territory of the Caucasus, Transcaucasia, Asia Minor. Winters in Central and East Africa.

Recorded in the spring in the Crimea and South-West Turkmenistan, but nesting of the species in these places has not been proven.

On migrations, it is often observed in mixed groups with the white collar flycatcher. It is spatially separated from the pied flycatcher, including migration routes. Together, all three species are found wintering in Africa.

On the territory of the Russian part of the Caucasus as a whole, the species is not numerous, it is found sporadically. A very rare species in the eastern Caucasus, common in the western in places, penetrates to the north up to the middle reaches of the Kuban.

4. Biology

Arrives at nesting sites in early April, departure is delayed until September. Inhabits deciduous and mixed forests, preferring floodplain forests with hollow poplars. It also lives in gardens and parks, in the mountains it rises to a height of 2 thousand meters above sea level. On the plains, it settles in floodplain deciduous forests, usually not far from the foothill zone.

Nests in tree hollows and artificial nests. Moss, leaves of trees and shrubs, stems, leaves and roots of herbs are used as a building material for the nest. The tray is lined with dry stems, bast fibers, leaves of herbs - mainly wild-growing cereals, less often with hairs of wool, horsehair, feathers. It takes 5-16 days to build a nest.

The number of eggs in a clutch is 4 - 7, most often 5 - 6. Eggs are of a single color, deep blue, with a blue tint. Chicks hatch on the 13-14 day of incubation.

Possibly, it hybridizes with the common flycatcher in the places where the boundaries of the ranges of these species in the Balkans meet.
