Blue-throated Flycatcher

This picture of a stunning Blue-throated Flycatcher is dedicated to my dear friend Steve with whom I spent most part of today birding and he led me to some wonderful habitat and found me some amazing birds to look at and photograph.


The Blue-throated Flycatcher (Cyornis rubeculoides) is a small passerine bird in the flycatcher family Muscicapidae. It resembles Cyornis tickelliae but easily separated by the blue throat. The habitat of this species is a thicker forest than other species of flycatchers. The #Blue-ThroatedFlycatcher is found much of the Indian Subcontinent, all through the Himalayas, the plains and Western Ghats of India in the cold months, and also extends eastwards into Bangladesh, and to Arakan and the Tenasserim Hills in Myanmar.
