  1. I know exactly how you feel! In Madagascar, Tanzania, and this year Sri Lanka, 3 years in a row this bird has been making appearances but oh so difficult to photograph. Posted 5 years ago

The Asian Paradise Flycatcher is a medium-sized passerine bird native to Asia. Males have elongated central tail feathers, and in some populations a black and rufous plumage while others have white plumage. Females are short-tailed with rufous wings and a black head. They feed on insects, which they capture in the air often below a densely canopied tree.

With an extremely large range and a large population that appears to be stable, they have been evaluated as Least Concern by IUCN since.. more
