The black and white Flycatcher is not necessarily the most common of the flycatcher birds, but it is the most easy to distinguish.
In the spring you can see the male sitting on a roof or in a tree, calling for a week, with a characteristic song.
At the same time it is hunting for a nest, often where other birds already have moved in, and often it ends with a battle.
Then comes the female up from Africa, and she begin inspectiong of their new home.

Leaving... wonder if he forgot to bring his wings?
På vei ut - men uten vinger?

The Flycatcher feeds on insects, (flyes, of course), but also butterflies. Sometimes it may be seen looking for earthworms,
even searching for berries.
