Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Please check geographical distribution carefully. The Black and Orange Flycatcher (Ficedula nigrorufa) is endemic to parts of south India, and is not found in Nepal. Also, the tail of the Black and Orange Flycatcher is pure orange unlike the bird in the photo. There are other differences, including the bill shape.
