Etymology[edit]

Kanji in this term
ひたき
Hyōgaiji
kun’yomi

Referred originally just to the 尉鶲 (jō bitaki, Phoenicurus auroreus or Daurian redstart), later came to refer to a number of visually similar species.

Likely a shift from 火焚き (hitaki, lighting a fire), from the characteristic call of the bird, which resembles the sound of striking a flint against a firestarter.[1][2][3]

Pronunciation[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

Noun[edit]

(hiragana ひたき, katakana ヒタキ, rōmaji hitaki)

  1. an Old World flycatcher: a bird belonging to the Muscicapidae family

Usage notes[edit]
