Say hello to the new bird!

Say hello to the new bird!

Large Blue Flycatcher, Cyornis magnirostris, a new species of bird for Bangladesh, was sighted in a mixed evergreen forest patch at Kaptai National Park in Rangamati last month. It was recorded by Prof Monirul Khan, who was leading a team under the project “Monitoring and Conservation of Wildlife in Kaptai National Park of Bangladesh” of Jahangirnagar University Zoology department and Bangladesh Forest Department. A key feature of the species is the hooked tip of its bill. Other identifying characters include the orange throat paler than the breast, contrasting cheek and throat, and pale legs. In the photos, the bluish bird is a male while the brownish one, is a female. Photo: Courtesy
