The first registration in Central Kazakhstan and the farthest record to the east from the range and, possibly, the most northern one. In Kazakhstan, the Semi-collared Flycatcher occurs on migration off the coast of the Caspian Sea.

Игорь Фефелов: Сложно. По окрасе, на мой взгляд, ближе к хохлатому - темное кистевое пятно почти не выражено.
