THE PARADISE FLYCATCHER OF THE SEYCHELLES: A PARADISE BIRD!

The Seychelles Paradise-flycatcher is a rare bird from the genus of paradise-flycatchers within the family Monarchidae. It is endemic to the Seychelles.

The length of the males is about 7.8 inches. In addition there are two long black central tail feathers which can reach a length of 11.8 inches. The males are entirely glossy black with a deep blue sheen. The upper parts of the females including wings and tail are reddish brown.

It lives in the Veuve Nature Reserve on La Digue, Seychelles, where it inhabits dense Calophyllum forests. Although a reservation was made especially for this bird, it is common to see it outside in the trees or even in the garden of the Seichellois people. Plans were made to get this bird back into the wild on other islands of the Seychelles, but so far, the numbers stayed the same. The bird’s conversation status is “critically endangered.”
