Indian Paradise Flycatcher

This beautiful bird is also a state bird of Madhya Pradesh.


This photograph is that of an adult male. Notice the black head with the prominent trailing crest, white body and white tail streamers – these are the characteristics of male, while the females lack the long tail streamers and have a paler grey throat.  They are best seen during the breeding summer and monsoon months as they become more vocal and active during this time.
