Orange-headed Thrush

This male orange headed Thrush (Zoothera citrina) was perched on a tree, looking for berries. I saw it and sat on the ground awaiting for a good frame. Fortuitously, the Thrush came on the ground and continued its hunt. Since I was squatting on the ground, it gave me nice eye level photographs. The bird is apparently a good imitator of other bird calls, and during my brief encounter with the bird, I heard quite a variety of chirps and songs coming from the pretty fellow.
