    Robin or flycatcher with yellow below

    My wife was about 60-70 feet away - she is adamant it was something she had not seen before. I have suggested immature robin but she says no, as it was too yellow below. It behaved like a robin and the normal garden we have has perched on the same recycling bin subsequently. My son is 9 years...

    Robin or flycatcher with yellow below

    No, as the bird did not have any speckling at all on the lower parts - it was just pure yellow, save for the paler belly area. i think a sketch might help.

    Robin or flycatcher with yellow below

    Thanks, I don't think it was a blackcap, as she says that there was no contrast between the brown of the crown and the rest of the upperparts. It was uniform in colour from the head to the back area - with the back being brown. The light conditions would be unlikely to make the bird show...

    Robin or flycatcher with yellow below

    My wife saw what she described as a robin type bird with yellow below, brown back, no superciliary or wing bars, dark thin bill, like a robin in profile, brown on crown/head. It did not behave like a warbler and was just like a robin in its movements. It did not raise or lower its tail, so held...
