I made a slight correction on the location of the observation, it is now completely accurate. Goshaini is a small village of Himachal Pradesh, in the foothills of the Himalayas, about 1,700 meters above sea level.
The subspecies observed is Terpsiphone paradisi leucogaster. This subspecies is the most northerly distributed, leading to Nepal, and the northern area of Pakistan.
On this website, have been considered out of range observation, and this is not true. I have more pictures of this bird, taken on the same day, and Goshaini village photos with the same date, to show that in Goshaini, this species is present.

The paradise-flycatchers, Terpsiphone, are a genus of monarch flycatchers. The genus ranges across Africa and Asia, as well as a number of islands. A few species are migratory, but the majority are resident. The most telling characteristic of the genus is the long tail streamers of the males of many species. In addition to the long tails the males and females are sexually dimorphic and have rufous, black and white plumage.
