Fairy Warbler

Stenostira scita (Vieillot, 1818)

The Fairy Flycatcher or Fairy Warbler (Stenostira scita) is a small passerine bird. Formerly placed in the Old World flycatcher family, Muscicapidae, it is now separated with some other "odd flycatchers" as the new family Stenostiridae (Beresford et al. 2005, Fuchs et al. 2006). It is the only member of the genus Stenostira. Source: Wikipedia
