RufousBreastedBushRobin

March 9, 2017 – Rufous-breasted Bush-robin (Tarsiger hyperythrus)

These bush-robins are found in the central and eastern Himalayas, southern China, and northern Myanmar. They eat insects, foraging mostly on the ground. Little is known about their breeding behavior, though a cup-shaped nest observed in Nepal was built from moss, grass, leaves, ferns, rhizomes, and hair. Both parents were seen bringing food to the chicks.
