Grey-headed Canary-flycatcher

The Grey-headed Canary-flycatcher sometimes known as the Grey-headed Flycatcher (Culicicapa ceylonensis) is a species of small flycatcher-like bird found in tropical Asia. It has a square crest, a grey hood and yellow underparts. They are found in forested habitats where they often join other birds in mixed-species foraging flocks. Pairs are often seen as they forage for insects by making flycatcher-like sallies and will often emit a squeaky call. Several subspecies are recognized within their wide distribution range. In the past the genus Culicicapa was placed in the family Muscicapidae but studies have found that they form a separate clade along with Stenostira and Elminia that are now considered as a family called Stenostiridae.[wiki]
