BEAUTIFUL BLUE & BLACK GLOSSY BIRD.

by SANJEEV
(GURGAON,HARYANA,INDIA)



A small,almost 4inches long bird made a hanging nest in my frontyard & gave birth to a small baby bird.The male has a glossy skin.He has a dark electric blue head & neck & the rest of the body is glossy black.The female is the same size but of brown color minus the glossy skin.They have a slightly long beak.They made a hanging nest(photo attached) in the month of april.


They used to regularly come & feed the baby in the nest but all of a sudden to our horror we discovered today that the baby was missing from the nest.We searched all around in the bushes but couldnt find it.No cats come here as the boundry wall is high.could the baby have flown away in a day?
