Redstart at Gir

In Gir Sanctuary went for Safari in an open jeep and we could see some birds flying around. We spotted the Redstart in open areas of the forest.


The adult male has overall dark grey to black on the upper parts and a black breast. The lower rump and tail are orange-red, and tail feathers dark red-brown.They have bright orange-red tails. The wings are blackish-grey.


They are rarely seen on the ground. They are usually seen on the trees.

Beautifully captured, Rajesh. I was about to say it reminds me of our robin-chats but they scrummage on the ground in the undergrowth; this bird doesn't. Have a great day. Jo
