Plumbeous Water Redstart Female

Phoenicurus fuliginosus

Habitat:

Small waterfall, with thick vegetation in the surrounding areas. This beautiful bird, with its male partner (which disappeared after taking only one photo), was catching flies in flight at the base of this waterfall. Warm place.

Notes:

Lucky for me, this beauty gave me lots of poses, of course keeping an eye on me every moment (we can see that in the set of photos!).

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated Doc!
