A new species for the Romanian fauna has been found: the red-flanked bluetail. The bird breeds normally in Siberia, in the forests of the taiga. There is also a population of around 6,000 pairs in Eastern Finland. The bird is a long-distance migrant, it comes from South East Asia and it is seen quite rare in Europe.
The first time a red-flanked bluetail adult female was captured and ringed in Romania in the Milvus Group’s Chituc Ringing Camp.
