An interesting flycatcher was found near a stream in Hong Kong and was well photographed by a bird photographer.
Based on the features of the bird, it could be Slaty-backed Flycatcher.
Please see the following link for detail.

For the benefit of those of us who cannot read Chinese, would it be possible to state which stream in Hong Kong this interesting (and very well-photographed) flycatcher was seen at??
Happy New Year,

The photographer haven't disclosed the location so far.

Sorry about that. The founder just provided the above information (in Chinese) and no detail of the bird's location.
I think most of the birders want to know the location and want to see it rather than just for watching the photos.

Gary & George -
Thanks for your responses.
Most people who visit this site - birdwatchers & photographers alike - tend to share their sightings & give directions so that others can enjoy the birds they have discovered.
I think this mutual sharing is very important, providing that it has no detrimental effect on the bird, of course.
Should you gain any further information, I know that I and others would appreciate directions etc...
All the best,

My understanding of the situation is that the photographer is refusing to divulge the location.
