Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica) - 17Jul2017

Some cool facts from the Cornell website: "Male Bluethroats from Alaska to northern Europe have red centers to the blue throat. Those in central and southern Europe have white throat centers or entirely blue throats." Also, "The Bluethroat is one of the handful of birds that breed in North America and winter in Asia. Exactly where the American birds go in winter is unknown."

This one was on the Hardangervidda in Norway.
