Sunbird maybe, if so most likely purple sunbird?
Thanks a lot for answering.However, Purple sunbird or any other sunbird is not known to occur in the Kashmir valley proper.It occurs in Jammu region and the adjacent hills, but as far as Kashmir valley is concerned, it has never been recorded as far as I am aware. It would be quite an extra ordinary sighting in the Kashmir valley.
Could it be the dark sided flycatcher?
Thanks !
