And the answer is… Pied Bush Chat!

   Posted by: admin   in Birds

Ok sometime back I had posed the question – “What bird is this?”.  As we could not identify this bird.  From all the responses that you can see below, I am convinced that it is a Pied Bush Chat.

I think I found the bird description. Please check out page 129 to 135 from this book. http://books.google.com/books?id=R2EHAQAAIAAJ&lpg=PA125&ots=5OPvXPFxip&dq=bourdilloni%20bird&pg=PA129#v=onepage&q=bourdilloni%20bird&f=false

Hi Kalpesh
Not sure which bird you meant. I went to the link you gave but it does not mention any particular bird. Can you be more specific and mention the name and then I could search on Google images and cross check.
Thanks for your response and effort

Hi
It looks like a Nilgiri Verditer Flycatcher. Was it the size of a sparrow? The description says the bird is indigo blue. But sometimes the colour is hard to fix because of the light and sometimes there are variations.
cheers,
