The Red-breasted Flycatcher, Nandi Hills, 241214

This morning, I went with Savithri Singh, her son Kartik and his friend Karuna, Brinda, and Sharmila, to Nandi Hills.

Though it certainly didn't rain birds, we saw enough to keep us quite happy, and one of the highlights of the outing was the



that flew about, delighting us.

Here's a video I took, to record the call of the bird:

Whether it caught flies or not...this bird certainly caught...our attention!
