Japanese Paradise-Flycatcher

Terpsiphone atrocaudata (Eyton, 1839)

The Black Paradise Flycatcher (Terpsiphone atrocaudata), also called the Japanese Paradise Flycatcher, is a medium-sized passerine bird. It was previously classified with the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae, but the paradise-flycatchers, monarch flycatchers and Australasian fantails are now normally grouped with the drongos in the family Dicruridae, which has most of its members in Australasia and tropical southern Asia.
