Calliope calliope

Calliope is a genus of Old World flycatchers in Muscicapidae. They are mainly found in Asia, but Siberian Rubythroat is a vagrant to North America.


Based on Liu et al. (2016), White-tailed Rubythroat, Calliope pectoralis, has been split into Himayalan Rubythroat, Calliope pectoralis, and Chinese Rubythroat, Calliope tschebaiewi.[1]
