Indian Pitta

An innocent pitta is a ground dwelling bird heavily camouflaged with surrounding area. They feed on ground insects. These winged visitors are from Northern India. They have a very pleasant call and each time we see it calling, it feels like pampering it. Very difficult to find them even if it is around. It is also called as 6'O Clock bird as it often calls in the early morning. A solitary Indian pitta is also difficult to photograph. Their habitat includes under growth, dense scrub forest, you can even see them in city gardens. This cutie is very famous among birdwatchers and photographers, thanks to its attractive and bold multicolored feathers! Locally it is called as "Navaranga" as it posses nine prominent colours.

Enjoy friends,
