Abstract

The Asian Paradise Flycatcher has always been a flamboyant passerine to be photographed quite often throughout the Gangetic Bengal in India, but hardly any behavioural documentation is enlisted till date.  The nesting behaviour of the subject bird encompassing its parental behaviours was studied on a wetland stretch of Ishapore, southern Gangetic Bengal.  The present study mainly deals with the nesting behaviour, incubation activities, hatching, and parental care to fledging of a wild pair.  The behavioural changes at par with the changing weather conditions and the neighbouring species too were studied.
