Chinese paradise flycatcher parents feed their hatchlings in the Fengyanglin Wetland Park in Huangshan City, east China's Anhui Province.
Since the beginning of summer, many paradise flycatcher couples have settled in the wetland park for reproduction, a sign of environmental improvement in the region.

As the name suggests, paradise flycatchers are insectivores, feeding on various insects.
The male birds are either white or rufous morph, while the females are only in rufous morph with tails relatively shorter than the male's.
