Original HBW caption:
The Semi-collared Flycatcher breeds in south-east Europe and the Middle East, especially Iran. Roughly half the population is thought to breed in Turkey. In the non-breeding season the entire population migrates to East Africa, where it is found in a relatively small area from Sudan south to Tanzania. In the breeding range it is reliant on native broadleaf forests, mainly of oak and hornbeam, a habitat increasingly threatened by logging interests and general clearance. The species is listed as Near-threatened, and its habitat deserves protection to ensure its long-term survival.
