Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Saw a male Asian/Oriental Paradise-flycatcher white morph, which is more common seen in the region according to Davison (1999). It lacked the long streamers, 2 long tail feathers, and this might indicate it is a young bird. The head is often described as ‘glossy black’, but there is metallic blue to the black.
Taxonomic Notes :The form incei is now treated as a full species: Amur Paradise-flycatcher Terpsiphone incei.
