Order PASSERIFORMES

Flycathchers
The flycatchers form a large family of woodland insect-eaters. There are a few migrants species. They tend to be quite and unobtrusive, and although some are quite colourful, they are not always wasy to identify. Those in the genus Rhinomyias and most species in the genus Muscicapa are brown, and it needs an expert to identify them. Many have songs, but those tend to be short, rather thin phrases which sound alike. The greatest variety of species is found in the hills. (Derek Holmes & Stephen Nash, The Birds of Sumatra and Kalimantan,1990)

Whistlers
This family comprises a group of bush-dwelling relatives of the flycatcher; they frequent the undergrowth, hunting for insects on the twigs and branches, and are usually solitary or in pairs; they have a rounded, proportionately heavy head. (Smythies, The Birds of Borneo, 1999)

Nurhatches
The bill is robust and chisel-shaped, but not powerful, and is used for extracting prey from crevices rather than for hammering like a woodpecker.(Smythies, The Birds of Borneo, 1999)
