Genus CHIMARRHORNIS

The genus Chimarrhornis is closely allied to the Forktails in habits, and connects them with the Redstarts. The sole species of this genus is found on the Himalayas and on certain hill-ranges of Assam and Burma.

In Chimarrhornis the sexes are alike, and the tail, which is chestnut tipped with black, is much rounded; the wing is large and rounded, the first primary being about half the length of the second; the tarsus is long.
