Blue Rock Thrush

Blue Rock Thrush by Ck Leong

A winter visitor! This Blue Rock Thrush Monticola solitarius was not at all worried by my presence when I chanced upon it last week. The bird is seen here almost every winter, preferring it seems, our western coastal areas. On all the previous occasions I have seen this bird, I never hear it call or make any kind of sound. This one was no different. Rather it was quite happy to make its presence known by perching on this tree stump. Good hunting!
