Red Breasted Flycatcher

Female - Old Fort, Delhi -Feb 2012

Male - Jaipur Feb 2012
The Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva) is a small passerine bird in the Old World flycatcher family. It breeds in eastern Europe and across central Asia and is migratory, wintering in south Asia. It is a regular passage migrant in western Europe, whereas the Collared Flycatcher which breeds further west is rare. This is because of the different migration direction.
