Brightly-colored ground-dwelling thrush. Bright orange head, breast and belly are unmistakable. Hops about foraging in the leaf litter in forested areas, often in wet gullies and ravines. Beautiful song is composed of well-spaced strophes of warbling and buzzy notes.

Captured with a Nikon 5300D at Keezara, Peralassery.
