The bluest of all colors, a sapphire’s hue can vary from baby blue to rich royal. Imagine what this stunning beauty would look like if it covered every inch of an animal’s feathers. They’d be transformed into something angelic and new! We humans may not know how we missed such beautiful creatures before now.
A one-of-a-kind plumage is nothing without its corresponding grace, especially when that extra touch makes all the difference in capturing someone by surprise or stealing their heart entirely.
The Himalayan Bluetail is a striking bird with an impressive blue coat that turns orange on its flanks. The adorable little chubby creature also has black wings, a tail, and a short bill – which gives it the appearance of smiling at you.
Let’s take a look at these amazing creatures!
The female Himalayan Bluetail is duller than the males. She has brown fur, a white throat, a paler blue rump, and a tail. Orange flanks are replaced by less vibrant shades of orange in this species.
Males have more colorful markings that make them stand out from other birds in their size or age group.
The Himalayan Red-flanked bush robin is a gorgeous bird found in the mountains of many countries such as Pakistan, India, and China. They have orange breasts with black markings on their wings, making them stand out among other birds.
Thanks to significant habitats, the population of this species is now stable. As a result, they’ve also been deemed Least Concern on ICUN’s list.
This bluebird prefers living in coniferous forests, from 3K-4 400 m altitude. It moves down to lower altitudes during wintertime when food is scarce, and temperatures are low enough for their feathers not to function correctly.
Mainly, they feed on insects. But, sometimes, they eat berries and seeds if the food is scarce.
When the female builds her nest, she spends all her time and effort incubating five eggs. She performs all the duties from feeding hatchlings to when they’ve grown enough to leave their foster parents’ home. The male doesn’t help at any point during this process.
