Hi Micetta - I think this is a Marico Flycatcher, one of the most common Flycatchers in KTP. It shows a dark brown back and very white undersides.

Cheers

Niall.

Cannot say these LBJs are easy :doh: Another Marakele visit this weekend (1-2/Sep) brought a few new birds for this beginner although I had the idea it was very quiet, guess because of the wind :?

This Flycatcher (I hope) I believe is a Marico Flycatcher. Underparts not 100% white but seems not nearly dark enough to be a Pale Flycatcher, or? Sitting on top of this Thorn tree when noticed flew of when pics were taken.
