NOTES ON THE LIFE HISTORY OF THEMOUSE-COLORED FLYCATCHERIN SURINAM

Mouse-coloured Tyrannulet (Phaeomyias murina) Science Article 1

abstract

The Mouse-colored Flycatcher (Phaeomyios murinu) is one of the many small and dull-colored flycatchers in tropical South America. For a description of the bird, its habitat, food, nest, and eggs, I refer the reader to my recently published ‘Birds of Surinam’ (Oliver and Bovd. Edinburgh. 1968). It was common in my iarden just outside Paramaribo, Surinam, where I found six nests with eggs; one on 31 January, five in April, and one with nestlings on 24 September.
