(Monticola solitarius)

Hello TN Friends!

Today I present the Blue rock-thrush.
Inhabitant of isolated rocky areas,a very territorial species, can also be observed in old houses in ruins near country villages. Last year I met the female. This time I met the adult male.

Have a good weekend and thanks for viewing.
