Common Tody-Flycatcher (Todirostrum cinereum)

Even though its name includes the word “Common”, November 6th, 2016 it was the first time I saw this bird, which was in Fincas Bambuzal, Rio Frio at my parent’s home. It was foraging low in the bushes, near a nest that’s was build hanging from a delicate branch. Sadly that same day, the owner of the terrain was cutting all vegetation, most probably to prepare for agriculture. I suppose the chicks did not survive.

This small bird is not quite as active as a warbler, but they do not stay still for long. You need to be quick to take a picture of them
