Chinese Flycatcher

Ficedula elisae (Weigold, 1922)

The green-backed flycatcher is a bird in the family Muscicapidae, which contains the Old World flycatchers. It was long considered to a subspecies of the narcissus flycatcher, but morphological and acoustical differences between the two indicate they are instead separate species. It breeds in northeastern China and winters in southeast Asia. Source: Wikipedia
