Asian Paradise flycatchers are noisy birds uttering sharp ‘skreek’ calls. In the afternoons during summers they dive from perches to bathe in small pools of water – a not-to-miss thing for birders and photographers. April-May is their breeding season and usually they are spotted in pairs. With their long tail, they often fly in wavy patterns.

There are around 14 species of paradise flycatchers – Asian Paradise flycatcher is one among them.
