Genus CULICICAPA

The genus Culicicapa contains one species of very wide distribution over the Empire, migratory in the plains, but resident in the Himalayas and many of the hill-ranges.
In this genus the sexes are alike and the plumage is grey and yellow. The bill is very much depressed, and viewed from above forms an equilateral triangle; the rictals are extremely numerous and long; the first primary is short and the tail is square.
