Sri Lanka Paradise-Flycatcher (Terpsiphone paradisi)

On the 2nd of November around 8.30 am , I noted a female flycatcher sitting on a branch of a mango tree. My eyes first went on to its leather-brown like feathers because its appearance was like a thick leather coat for the bird.

I saw this bird for the first time and was happy to learn a bit more about it.

The ‘chestnut’ upper parts, short tail and the short crest made me identify it as a – female Sri Lankan Flycatcher.
Its chest was white colour.

The timing of the observation seemed to be right as i also learnt that it is a Winter Visitor.

We saw it again on the 8th of November 2020, around the same time it was noted earlier.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t take a picture at the both times but looking forward for it.
