The female Siberian Blue Robin was quite a chore to Identify and I referred it to the expert when it was already very difficult for me to decide if it were a female or a male. The female comes in different variants, one with just brown and very little blue on the feathers and wings and with white on the belly, the other one is with more blue on the wings and some brown on the bigger feathers then with that orange-brown throat. It was really a chore. Here is one bathing though I have other stunning photographs, I have chosen the one in which the bird is enjoying a baht before dark.
This bird used to be classified as a member of the Thrush family and then now, Old World Flycatcher. The last name of this bird can be deceiving as it is a Robin; it is a migratory bird breeding in eastern Asia and Japan and winters in Southeast Asia and the Indonesian islands.
It feeds on insects on the ground with dense vegetation. I was delighted to have seen this bird and it gave me some time in which i could take photographs for me keep.
