Ceylon Blue Magpie (Kehi bella)

One of the most spectacular birds of Sri Lanka, the Blue Magpie inhabits dense, virgin forests of the wet zone and the hill country. It is between a House Crow and a Mynah in size. Its gorgeous blue and chestnut plumage seen against a backdrop of verdant green is a sight to behold. It is a very active and noisy bird which moves about in small flocks. Occasionally pairs or solitary birds are met with. The bird inhabits all levels of the forest, from the tops of tall trees to ground level.
