Hide and Seek with Wildlife: Part 10

As I mentioned in my first post of this series, I shall share photos of wildlife to showcase the extent of their amazing camouflaging abilities. Spotting wildlife in such a situation is exciting. You know something is out there hiding in plain sight and you challenge yourself to spot it. Here is an easy quiz for the weekend! Spot the wildlife in the photograph!

Is it a lizard, bird, snake or something else all together?!!!

On the evening of 20th February, 2020, I heard a familiar call. It was a bird no doubt and that too, a rather uncommon one on campus. I spent a good 10 minutes trying to figure out where the bird was. Even though it was calling continuously during that period, I could not spot the bird! Well, this was a delightful visitor to spot!

Red-breasted flycatcher (Ficedula parva

It was a Red-breasted Flycatcher (Male!) !!!

Here is a close up of the bird. Notice how the orange-red breast of the bird matches the fallen leaves on the ground. Even the brown colour gives that extra edge on the camouflage front!
