Indian Pitta (Pitta brachyura) is a favourite among birdwatchers in India. It breeds in the central and northern parts of the Indian peninsula and migrates to South India during winter.
During summer, it is very bold and conspicuous, often calling in the open. But it becomes shy and secretive during winter, calling and showing itself only during dawn and dusk.
Indian Pitta is especially prone to collisions with glass facades and buildings during autumn migration in South India.
