May 16, 2017 – Kashmir Flycatcher (Ficedula subrubra)

Found in northeast Pakistan and northwest India, these flycatchers migrate to Sri Lanka and southwest India during the non-breeding season. Like other flycatchers, they feed on insects. Breeding between May and June, monogamous pairs are territorial. Their nests are messy cups of leaves, moss, and other materials built in natural holes and hollows. They are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN because of habitat loss and degradation in their small, fragmented range.
