African Paradise Flycatcher (Terpsiphone viridis) subadult male


This is a young male. Adult breeding males show more of a crest, have a bright blue orbital eyering, an electric blue upper mandible and very long ribbon streamers to the tail. Females resemble young males but usually lack white wingbars and show no real evidence of tail streamers.
This guy's tail was only starting to show the extensions.
