The Male Grandala Is Beautiful Bird Who Has Electric Blue And Jet-Black Feathers

Grandalas ((Grandala coelicolor) are one of the most beautiful birds I have ever seen. The males are an electric blue colour with jet-black wings and tail, while the females are brown and scaly with a white wing bar.

Often seen swirling in flocks above mountain passes, scrubby alpine forests, and highland meadows, this large thrush is unlike any other. Adult male is a deep, almost eye-searing blue with jet-black wings. Females and immatures are brown with white streaks all over the head and underparts and weak white bars on the wings. Long-billed and sharp-winged profile, along with flocking behavior, is more reminiscent of starlings than thrushes.
