hi, I looked the profile of your bird, it seemed to lack the jizz of the jungle flycatcher, looked very much like a Ficedula flycatcher to me, had you tried considering female Mugimaki Flycatcher or Rufous-chested Flycatcher? Note: Jungle Flycatchers usually have thick longer bills.

Have you seen FCJF before ?

I observed this bird for few hours together with the juvenile.

honestly, nope, never seen any jungle flycatchers before, I am just puzzled by the orangey throat-breast patch that generally goes all the way into the throat area, that seemed to be odd, shouldn't the throat be white contrasting with the orangey breast band?

The bill shape is badly shown in this angle of this picture, but of course you get to see the bird in real, so you probably have more information to help you to ID.

I find that flycatchers are also a very challenging group for me so far, haven't spent enough effort to sort all the species out and the best way to differentiate them from one another yet.

Any other photos, especially the juveniles for example to share? Thanks.
