Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Male unmistakable; female and juvenile more subdued but still have the rufous flanks and blue tail. Breeds in mature taiga forests, especially ancient mossy spruce forests with lots of dead trees. Winters in a range of wooded areas, including parks and forest edges. Can be hyperactive, moving quickly across the forest floor, stopping to shimmer the tail downwards. Feeds on insects and berries in the autumn.
