Paradise Flycatcher of India Male Paradise birds are always show stoppers for both Wildlife people and also for non-Wildlife people. We all are amazed to see such long white tail of the bird and the flashy white colour. I was waiting for Verditer Flycatcher and meanwhile this champ gave me some poses. Very difficult to get whole bird in a single image because of their long tail.

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
