Indian Robin Pictures and Detail
One day, I came across a small bird with brown upper part and navy blue lower part. Initially, I had no idea of this bird, then an online friend told me that it is Indian Robin and it is a male Indian Robin. 
In India, we can find many varieties of birds and Indian Robin is a specific Robin species which is found in Indian subcontinent countries. The picture, I took is of a North Indian Robin which I took in Punjab state of India. 
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.
