The Taiwan Chinese ornithological names of the Muscicapidae follow English and international naming patterns, but the source of the names themselves tends to be Japanese. Only a few names are taken from Chinese popular or ordinary usage. Older Taiwanese ornithological names are often somewhat different from Mainland names, but more recent additions to the list almost invariably adopt the Mainland name, sometimes at the expense of consistency. Given the large size of the family and the convoluted background of some of the names, the following notes are somewhat lengthy.

Chinese has non-ornithological names for a number of species. The most prominent is 知更鳥 zhīgēng-niǎo 'know hours (time watches) bird', the conventional term for the robin (etymological background unknown). There are folk names for a number of focal species, notably the magpie robins, flycatchers, redstarts and rock thrushes.

Ornithological names

The ornithological names for the Muscicapidae fall into the following groups:

1. wēng is used for species known as 'flycatchers' in English. It is not an independent word and can only form part of a larger word. It covers the genera Muscicapa, Cyornis, Anthipes, Niltava, Cyanoptila, Eumyias, and Ficedula. In other families it also refers to the monarch flycatchers (Monarchidae: Hypothymis).

The fairy flycatchers (Cyornis, Niltava) are known as 仙鶲 xiān-wēng 'fairy flycatcher'. xiān is a Chinese term for fairies, immortals, and mountain hermits (who have supposedly attained Daoist secrets like longevity). The suggestion for naming niltavas in the earliest Chinese ornithological list, Chinese Birds (35), was 仙女 xiān-nǚ 'fairy woman', a translation of the English name. This has been since simplified into the two-character format 仙鶲 xiān-wēng.

Origin: wēng in the sense of 'flycatcher' was clearly taken from Japanese, where it is used to write hitaki 'flycatcher'. Less clear is the origin of the Japanese usage. Lexicological sources suggest that was an old Chinese character for an unspecified kind of bird that was adopted to represent hitaki 'flycatcher' in the absence of a suitable alternative. in its new sense was then adopted by the Chinese for their ornithological names.

However, it appears that wēng is not entirely without a background in Chinese. Minus the bird radical, wēng meant both 'old man' and the 'feathers on the nape of a bird's neck' in Classical Chinese. The popular modern name of the Light-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus sinensis) is 白頭翁 bái-tóu wēng 'white-headed old man'. Moreover, two muscicapid species are known as wēng in folk usage: the White-capped Water Redstart (Chaimarrornis leucocephalus) is 白頂鶲 bái-dǐng wēng 'white-capped weng' and the Pied Wheatear (Oenanthe pleschanka) is 白頭鶲 bái-tóu wēng 'white-headed weng'. It is possible that the Japanese use of for hitaki is actually based on some kind of Chinese model.

2. is the Chinese ornithological name of the robins (Erithacus, Luscinia, Larvivora, Calliope, Myiomela, and Tarsiger), magpie robins (Copsychus and Kittacincla) and redstarts (Phoenicurus, Phoenicuropsis, Rhyacornis, Chaimarrornis). Names have been subdivided by genus:

鵲鴝 què-qú 'magpie robin', a literal translation of the English, is used for Copsychus.

歌鴝 gē-qú 'song-robin' is used for species previously belonging to Erithacus or Luscinia, now scattered among a number of genera.

林鴝 lín-qú 'forest-robin' is used for the genus Tarsiger. The earlier form of this name, as found in Chinese Birds (35), was 樹叢歐鴝 shùcóng ōu-qú, literally 'bush European-robin'. It has since been changed to the current, simpler name.

紅尾鴝 hóng-wěi-qú 'red-tailed robin' is used for redstarts formerly belonging to Phoenicurus, now split between Phoenicurus and Phoenicuropsis.

水鴝 shuǐ-qú 'water robin' is used for the Rhyacornis water redstarts.

溪鴝 xī-qú 'brook robin' is used for the Chaimarrornis water redstart (river chat).

Origin: The character traditionally formed part of the word 鴝鵒 qúyù meaning 'myna' and was never used independently. Its use for the robins also took place under Japanese influence, but in a roundabout way. In Japanese, 駒鳥 koma-dori 'horse-bird' or 'pony-bird' is the name of the Japanese Robin (Larvivora akahige), due to the resemblance of its call to a horse's whinnying. This name was extended to other types of robin, such as the Siberian Rubythroat (Luscinia calliope) or 野駒 no-goma, literally 'field pony'. In the seminal Chinese biological dictionary Zoological Nomenclature (1923), 駒鳥 koma-dori was listed as 鴝鳥 qú-niǎo and 野駒 as 野鴝 yě-qú, substituting for 'pony'. The motive for the substitution is clear: it would have seemed quite incongruous to call a small bird a 'horse'. The two characters share the phonetic element ; the substitution involves changing the semantic element from 'horse' () to 'bird' (). (In fact, the actual form used at the time was qu). In this way, the character went from being part of a name for the mynas to being an ornithological name for the robins.

3. Several species are known by the name 琉璃 liúli 'glass', borrowed from Japanese 琉璃 ruri 'lapis lazuli'. The name has a somewhat different meaning in the two languages.

4. 剪尾 jiǎn-wěi 'cut-tail' is the name given to the Taiwanese species of forktail in Chinese Birds (35) and has been used in Taiwan until the present day.

5. Oenanthe is a relative newcomer to Taiwanese bird lists, and the name given to the genus, , is based on the Mainland ornithological names. is traditionally an alternative form of the character 'wagtail', and forms part of the Chinese word for 'wagtail' (鶺鴒 jílíng). The reason for the choice of character is unclear. This name replaced the suggested name in Chinese Birds (35), 石栖鸟 shí-qī-niǎo 'rock-roosting bird', which was an attempt to render the English name.

Among the wheatears, Oenanthe oenanthe is called the 穗䳭 suì-jí or 'grain-ear chat' in Chinese. This is based on the suggested name in Chinese Birds (35), which was 麥穗 mài-suì 'wheat ear'. In fact, the wheatear in English was originally named not for its resemblance to a grain of wheat but for its white rump or 'white arse', which was later modified into 'wheatear'. The Chinese name is therefore based on a misapprehension.

6. Several genera were originally placed with the Turdidae and bear thrush names. They include:

小翼鶇 xiǎo-yì-dōng 'small-winged thrush' for the shortwings (Brachtyperus). The original suggested name in Chinese Birds was 短髈 duǎn-bǎng 'short-wing'. The Taiwanese name here differs from the Mainland name.

嘯鶇 xiào-dōng 'whistling-thrush' for the whistling-thrushes (Myophonus). The original suggested name in Chinese Birds was 嘯聲鶇 xiào-shēng dōng 'whistling-voiced-thrush.

磯鶇 jī-dōng 'rocky-shore thrush' is used for the rock thrushes (Monticola), based on Zoological Nomenclature (1923), under the influence of the Japanese name, 磯鵯 iso-hiyodori 'rocky-shore bulbul'. The suggested name in Chinese Birds was 石鶇 shí-dōng 'stone-thrush'.

Named after Japanese ornithologist Ogawa Minori (小川三紀), 1876-1908.

The meaning of here is not clear. It can be written with the characters 尉 'officer, captain', 常 'always', or 上 'above' respectively.

(34) lists both Although it uses the character 鹟 wēng ('flycatcher') rather than 翁 wēng ('old man'), this name is identical in pronunciation to the popular name of the Light-vented Bulbul 白头翁 bái-tóu-wēng (Pycnonotidae).

The word 鮮卑 xiānbēi refers to an ancient Mongolic-speaking ethnic group living in the area of modern eastern Mongolia and northeastern China. They established a large empire in the early centuries of the Christian era and one branch later established the Northern Wei dynasty in China (386-535). This name for Muscicapa sibirica possibly reflects the theory that the Xianbei gave their name to Siberia.

The magua (马褂) was a kind of riding jacket originally worn by the Manchus (see Magua).

The word oanh, from Chinese 鶯 yīng, traditionally refers to the Black-Naped Oriole. In ornithological Vietnamese it is also used for the robins.
