The EUROPEAN WHITE-TAILED FLY-CATCHER

Differs only from the last in having the ferruginous coloring spread down the breast, instead of being confined to the neck and throat. It is doubtful if the male ever assumes the garb of the female. It is spread generally throughout the district, but only as a rather common cold weather visitant.
