Abstract

The Yellow-rumped Flycatcher Ficedula zanthopygia is an extremely rare bird and historically recorded from two localities in central India and southern India. We record its sighting from Kuldiha Wildlife Sanctuary of Odisha, eastern India. This offers an opportunity for additional survey throughout the recorded localities to explain its wintering status in India.
