The Amur paradise flycatcher (Terpsiphone incei) is a bird species in the family Monarchidae. It is native to China, Manchuria and Primorsky Krai in the Russian Far East. It is a winter migrant to Southeast Asia. Until 2015, it was considered as a subspecies of the Asian paradise flycatcher. [Source: Wikipedia]
For female and first-winter/sub-adult birds, deeper maroon-chestnut upperparts and tail, black hood (crown, face and throat) contrast markedly with the greyish upperbreast. The tail of adult males can extend up to 27 cm or more. Adult males of the three paradise flycatcher species (Amur, Blyth’s and Indian) occur as a white as well as a brown morph. However, white birds with nearly all white plumage and glossy black head could not be conclusively identified as either Amur or Blyth’s Paradise Flycatcher. [Source: Singapore Birds Project]
