THE EUROPEAN RED-BREASTED FLYCATCHER.
Siphia parva parva, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 210.
The European Red-breasted Flycatcher breeds from South and Eastern Europe to West Siberia.
Capt. Perreau records it as breeding in Chitral (Journ. Bomb. Nat. Hist. Soc. vol. xix, p. 906, 1910). He writes:—“One pair, the only ones I saw during the summer, bred in the upper Drosh Garden.” Perreau knew the bird and the identification is probably correct, but the occurrence was quite unusual, and the birds may have been S. p. hyperythra.
