    Nice composition. Its quite difficult to compose to include the big tail. Its good that it was perched in the open. There is some noise, is it a crop? A slight head turn would have enhanced the image further. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice shot. The details on the body are good. However I think there is some detail loss on the crest. Wonder why... TFS.

    An excellent bird. Very photogenic.I like that the tail is not clipped and well in the frame. The head angle looks nice. I like this image. Thanks for sharing.

    Jitendra,
    Where and when did you photograph this?

    I am sure that people are confused that it looks slightly different than the paradise flycatcher. In the image the bird has a blue crest as opposed to a black crest normally seen in males.

    The Birds of South Asia The Ripley Guide says:
    In C Nicobars nicobarica has very short crest, bluer gloss on head than saturatior, an olive upper mantle and darker underparts with cinnamon flanks and chestnut vent; darker and more saturated overall than saturatior.

    However, there is no mention in the book that the nicobarica is seen in mainland India.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
