The Dramatic Head Tilt Of A Male Royal Flycatcher

April 27, 2018

Stefano Ianiro, a wildlife conservation photographer and bird bander in Montreal, filmed a beautiful male Royal Flycatcher.

The most notable feature of the Royal Flycatcher is its long ornate crest. Though it is rare to see the crest erected in a free flying Royal Flycatcher, these birds are well known for fanning the crest when held in the hand, while rhythmicaly swaying the head from side to side.

"What I've noticed is that males perform a much more dramatic head tilt," Ianiro said. "Hope you guys enjoy!"
