Blue Whistling Thrush

Myophonus caeruleus temminckii


The Blue Whistling Thrush (Myophonus caeruleus) is a large blackbird-like thrush found along the Himalayas in South Asia and extending into Southeast Asia. It is known for its loud human-like whistling song at dawn and dusk. The widely distributed populations show variations in size and plumage with several of them considered as subspecies. Like others in the genus, they feed on the ground, often along streams and in damp places foraging for snails, crabs, fruits and insects.
