Siberian Blue Robin (luscinia cyane ) 13 - 14 cm

During a recent birding trip I had the opportunity to observe the change in plumage of this migratory specie which had been a 'guest' here since December last year. When this Juvy (Juvenile) arrived it's plumage was 'dull blue rump to upper tail, some blue on the scapulars/coverts'. Three months hence it's plumage have turned more vibrant blue all round. Hope to see and record it again before it returns to it's homeland.
