    1. Hi Ferdy,
      Thank you for the comments :-)
      Yes, it was jumping from one branch to another and in the process it's tail formed in that way. I just got two frames before it took off to another.

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
