Orange-headed Thrush - adult male

Zoothera citrina cyanota
In month of April, we visited the Vansda National Park. We saw many birds including the Lesser Yellownape. This bird come to drinking water as temperature is too high.

We can see two type of Orange-headed Thrush in India. One with Orange head and other with two black band in it. We have seen in Gujarat mostly second type. Its a) citrina and b) cyanotus. So we see the cyanotus.  So name of this one is Zoothera citrina cyanota.
