The Bluethroat is a robin size passerine bird and known for its distinctive blue patch on the throat which the male species flaunts. They usually shy away and hide themself in low and dense shrubs or vegetation but sometimes males may perch up to sing. It was formerly classified as a member of the Thrush family Turdidae, but is now considered to be an Old World Flycatcher in the Muscicapidae family.
