Birds in Neighbourhood - 8

I get to see variety of birds around my parents house in Udupi. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is Asain Paradise Flycatcher



It is a medium-sized bird found mostly in Asia usually dense forest areas.  




Males have elongated central tail feathers, while the females and young ones are short-tailed. Their heads are glossy black with a black crown and crest. They have black bill and black eyes.




As the name suggests they feed on insects.

As mentioned over. I'd like to see a close up, but photographing birds isn't easy.
Take care.
