Sexy Back - The Beauty of the Mountain Verditer Flycatcher Wing & Back Patterns

Eumyias panayensis | Mountain Verditer Flycatcher
Posted an earlier image of this beautiful bird I first spotted about 7 years ago in Maligcong, Bontoc in Mountain Province but has proven elusive until this year.   Posting another angle that shows the beautiful wing patterns of the Mountain Verditer Flycatcher (
Eumyias panayensis) found in the subtropical or montane forests of  the Philippines and Indonesia.  Staus: Least Concern.  Backlit conditions required me to lighten up the shadows to reveal the subtle coloring of this bird, a lucky find especially as I was too lazy to go birding most afternoons. | For a checklist of birds found and catalogued here in the Philippines, visit the eBon link. (Many thanks to my buddy, Ironwulf, for letting me channel his Topaz post-processing powers to denoise the very noisy details of the image out of a Nikon Coolpix B700)
