Blue-throated blue flycatcher

Binomial name: Cyornis rubeculoides, Nicholas Aylward Vigors, 1831

The blue-throated blue flycatcher (Cyornis rubeculoides) is a small passerine bird in the flycatcher family Muscicapidae. It resembles Cyornis tickelliae but easily separated by the blue throat. The habitat of this species is a thicker forest than other species of flycatchers. The blue-throated flycatcher is found in much of the Indian Subcontinent, all through the Himalayas, the plains and Western Ghats of India in the cold months, and also extends eastwards into Bangladesh, and to Arakan and the Tenasserim Hills in Myanmar.
