September 10, 2016 – White-capped Redstart, White-capped Water-redstart, or River Chat (Chaimarrornis leucocephalus)
These birds are found in Asia, from Afghanistan east through the Himalayas to eastern China, reaching as far south as Vietnam. They eat insects, including flies, beetles, and ants, along with some spiders, mollusks, and berries. Nesting near fast-moving mountain streams, they are often observed perching on boulders surrounded by rushing water. Their breeding season is from May to July or August and they often raise two broods of chicks a year.
