The paradise whydahs we saw were a frustrating experience on our trip. As they weren't in breeding plumage, we genuinely couldn't distinguish long-tailed from broad-tailed. While range maps suggest we probably saw broad-tailed at some point, I definitely didn't count them. Even the book just says "nope. Good luck. Don't bother. Wait for January when they have their tails".
This is the most breeding male we saw. Anyone want to try an ID? ☺ Forrest Inn, Zambia, Dec 2019.
