The scientific name of Indian Robin is Saxicoloides Fulicatus and it belongs to the Muscicapidae family of birds. It is common to find Indian robins in semi forests and open area looking for food.

We can find differences in the colors of Indian Robin in other parts of India.  The female Indian Robins don't have dark colors.

These birds prefer dry environment and therefore, we don't find them in places where rain is too common. In villages, outer parts of cities or in the gardens, we can easily some of Indian Robins.

Indian Robin eats insects, we can notice them turning stones to find insects.
