Listen to the Gambaga flycatcher

Remarks from the Recordist

Only the call of this species is described in the literature. Song here is a lazy series of scratchy notes in phrases of up to 6 notes each. Rhythmically similar to African Dusky Flycatcher (e.g. XC344763) by way of shortened 2nd bar of two-phrase repetition, whereby notes are cut short and listener is left hanging.

Differs otherwise in being slower, lower pitched and without the frenetic embellishments of African Dusky Flycatcher.



Remarks from the Recordist

A three note buzzy jingle repeated..."djrrr-ZEE-whit".

Bird singing from the midstory of a mostly leafless tree next to a manyatta, in lightly wooded semi arid rocky savanna habitat.



Remarks from the Recordist

A single call note.
