Indian Robin

The beautiful Indian robin (Saxicoloides fulicatus) is a bird in the Muscicapidae family. It is widespread in the Indian subcontinent, and ranges across Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The males of northern populations have a brown back whose extent slowly reduces southwards with populations in the southern peninsula having an all black back. They are commonly found in open scrub areas and seldom seen running along the ground or perching on low thorny shrubs and rocks. Their long tails are held erect and their chestnut undertail covert and dark body make them easily distinguishable from the pied bushchat and the oriental magpie robin.Source: Rajen
