I thought I found a jackpot of having the Black and Orange Flycatcher but I was wrong, there are no recorded migration to Thailand of such bird. So I sent my find to my to Ayuwat Jearwattanakanok, one of the officers of BCST and truly knowledgeable of the birds of Thailand, and he said it is a female Hill-Blue Flycatcher. I tried to check and confirm it to the internet and found out that he was right.

I am very happy to have found the female Hill-Blue Flycatcher; it is difficult sometimes to differentiate them from the rest. I think the female is equally beautiful as the male, its orange and brown belly and white to the tail is just a very beautiful combination. The head and the feathers to the wings are just perfect combination.
