The Ring Ouzel (Turdus torquatus) is such a beautiful bird! The color details of this adult male's plumage are splendid, as well as this striking white crescent on the chest. There were at least 6 Ring Ouzels on that same place. It is a member of the thrush family Turdidae and is the mountain equivalent of the blackbird we all know.

Love Nature.
