Indian Robin

The Indian Robin (Saxicoloides fulicata ) is a species of bird in the Muscicapidae family or flycatcher. It is widespread in the Indian Subcontinent and a year round resident. I was told, quite firmly, that this is a "true" robin unlike our American Robin Redbreast (Turdus migratorius), which is a migratory songbird of the thrush family, and only named after the European Robin because of its reddish-orange breast.
