The Indian Robin (Saxicoloides fulicatus) is a small bird occurring almost throughout the Indian subcontinent (India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka). The birds can be found quite commonly in open stony, grassy, or scrub forest habitats. The sexes look similar, but females are generally slightly duller and lack the whitish shoulder patch which can be seen in many (but not all) males. Usually, the robins favor dry areas and are non-migratory. They feed mostly on insects, but also catch the occasional small lizard or frog. Characteristically, the birds erect their long tails and display a chestnut-colored patch of plumage. I have seen these elegant, little robins on many walks through the countryside of Kachchh in western India during January 2015.
