Meet The blue-banded Pitta, A Stunningly Beautiful Bird With Bright Red Jacket And Glittering Blue Necklace

There are many stunningly beautiful birds in nature. They are too perfect to be true. They have one-of-their-kind plumage, making them precious flying gems. A lot of colors appear in their coat but they combine harmoniously. Their plumage really gets us, humans, astonished. We have never thought that multi-colors can come together in that clever way.

The blue-banded pitta is among these outstanding birds. It has a striking belly of bright red and glittering blue flecks around its chest. These flecks form a chic necklace, making these creatures more conspicuous in their colony. They have been widely known as “Jewel of Borneo”.

The back, wings, and tail of this species, however, is a dull blue-green color. This creates a stunning contrast with its lower parts, right?

The female of this species looks quite similar to the male though she has a slightly different color on the wings and tail. They are still beautiful and shine in nature.

Blue-banded pitta birds are a member of the Pittidae family. They are endemic to the island of Borneo, Indonesia. But these unique-looking birds can also be found in Brunei and Malaysia.

They prefer living in hilly and submontane subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, specifically bamboo groves and fallen trees.

These birds dine mainly on snails, insects, and similar invertebrates.

During the breeding season, the female blue-banded pitta builds her nest in trees and or shrubs, or even on the ground. She then lays 6 eggs in her nest and incubates them. She continues to feed the hatchlings until fully-fledged.
