Name the bird ?

By obz_uk
I photographed this bird on the island of Menorca. Most of the birds around the hotel were sparrows, but I cant find out what type of bird that this one is. The bird let me approach very close to him, I only had the standard lens with me at the time.

Thankyou for all the good wishes regarding my holidays.......For a quiet holiday away from it all, Menorca is a wonderful place to visit.

Looks like a Spotted Flycatcher to me, possibly a juvenile bird. Worth a double-confirmation.... Smile

Great capture.

Thanks for the input.....I have looked it up in my bird book and I think you may be right......there are similar looking other birds, but they dont have the dark coloured legs and feet.

I admit that I don't know what it is, but I do like the photo and it's crispness.

don't know the bird but a good image in contrasty light conditions - I use to sail in Minorca at Sea Salenas near Fornells.
