female, adult, winter plummage
This is the female Siberian Rubythroat, a winter visitor in Taiwan. Instead of flaming ruby colored throat in the male, the feather of this female rubythroat is generally similar and a little less than the male counterpart. This female is paired with the male in Yehliu area, so this is easy to identify. However, in the field, this female bird will be difficult to be identified. Similar to the male, this bird is very happy to hop around lots.
