Green-backed (Elisae’s) Flycatcher

Here is a short video of a male GREEN-BACKED (Elisae’s) FLYCATCHER that appears to be breeding at Badaling, within sight of the Great Wall.

The Badaling Forest Park is a good place to see some of Beijing’s breeding birds including YELLOW-RUMPED FLYCATCHER, CLAUDIA’S and EASTERN CROWNED WARBLERS, ASIAN STUBTAIL, WILLOW (SONGAR) and YELLOW-BELLIED TITS and many more.  We were even lucky enough to stumble across a juvenile CHINESE TAWNY OWL, a scarce breeder in Beijing.
