Social flycatchers

Social flycatchers love to setup their households in the Pau Brasil trees next to the Bosque reception center. I can't tell you how many families have been raised in this environment. In the upper image, one of the parents entering the nest with food for the chicks. In the upper image, the other parent (I assume) watches on as a intruder insists on taking pictures. Inside the nest there were sounds of joy from the young residents waiting for delicacies of the forest.

What an untidy nest!! LOL!! Our flycatchers tend to all be black and not half as beautiful as this one.

We have more than 40 species of flycatchers here in this part of the Amazon. Never heard of the black ones.
