The Siberian Blue Robin (Larvivora cyane) is a delightful small migrant that forages on leaf litter at the forest floor making images tough (I dislike using flash for birds).
Very beautiful blue male and the mantel can look almost black in low light (see Post 4).
Runs about on the forest floor with short bursts of flight; very fast. Likes to ‘flutter’ or vibrate the tail very fast when walking or stationary.
