Asian Paradise Flycatcher (white morph) in Beijing

Prior to my trip to Anhui a few weeks ago, I had a lovely birding day around Beijing outskirts close to the GubeiKou area. We were told that we could see the scops owls and possibly breeding Asian Paradise Flycatcher (white Morph) along an off-trail! Shortly after we’ve parked the car, we could hear the male calling loud and clear! It was a brilliant to see couple after I had missed this elusive bird in South India. We spent the morning trying to get some nice videos and photos!

The trail itself offers quality birding apart from this amorous couple! Forest wagtail, Yellow-rumped flycatchers kept the forest lively, it was nice to see them..but what kept my heart pumping to the max., was I finally saw my lifer- Crested Kingfisher!! 🙂  After eluding me for 2 yrs, I can finally move on…hehe.
