White-bellied Blue Flycatcher

An exclusive resident of the western Ghats, the White-bellied Blue Flycatcher ( Cyornis pallipes ) has a striking blue colour. The upper two photograph, are of the female, the lower two the colourful male. The female has a bright red patch on the breast, and probably the brightest among the female flycatchers. Like the name suggests and like other flycatchers the bird chiefly eats insects. Although compared to other flycatcher this is much laid back bird. Quite a delightful bird to photograph.
