The blue whistling thrush is a very beautiful bird found in the mountain area of Pakistan like Margalla Hills, Islamabad. Their voice is very loud and they are active at dawn and dusk. They are mostly found on the ground foraging for fruit and insects. The blue whistling thrush has a dark violet-blue color with a yellow bill.
In Margalla Hills, they are found everywhere from deep forest to the foothill area. They are very territorial and mostly have fights with other birds. They like to live alone and are mostly found single. They are very opportunist as are also found near dumping areas to find food. On my birding visit to Margalla, I always see this bird. They are not very shy so I get some good shots. They are mostly found near the water pounds.
