Clearly one the most good-looking passerine I have ever seen, this male Indian Blue Robin (Larvivora brunnea) is a superb bird. With its orange belly and white eyebrow it reminds me the male Common Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus) we can see in Europe.

The Indian Blue Robin is a migratory species. It spends the winter in the forests of the Western Ghats.

Love Nature.
