The Indian pitta (Pitta brachyura) is a passerine bird native to the Indian subcontinent. It inhabits scrub jungle, deciduous and dense evergreen forest. It breeds in the forests of the Himalayas, hills of central and western India, and migrates to other parts of the peninsula in winter. Although very colourful, it is usually shy and hidden in the undergrowth where it picks insects on the forest floor. It has a distinctive two note whistling call which is heard at dawn and dusk.[3] It is listed as least concern on the IUCN Red List as the population is considered large
The Indian pitta breeds mainly in the Himalayan foothills from the Margalla hills in northern Pakistan to Nepal and possibly up to Sikkim in the east, and in the hills of central India and in the Western Ghats south to Karnataka.[22][23][24] It migrates to all parts of peninsular India and Sri Lanka in winter. Exhausted birds sometimes turn up in human settlements.[19] It is rare in the Thar Desert.

Indian pittas roost in trees.[23] They feed on insects and other small invertebrates that they usually pick up from the ground or leaf litter. They have also been noted to take kitchen food scraps from the ground.[26]

They breed during the south-west monsoon from June to August, with peaks in June in central India, and in July in northern India.[27] The nest is a globular structure with a circular opening on one side built on the ground or on low branches. It is made up of dry leaves and grasses. The clutch is four to five eggs which are very glossy white and spherical with spots and speckles of deep maroon or purple.[19][23]

Avian malaria parasites have been noted in the species.[28] Five out of thirteen birds in an ectoparasite survey were found to have the tick, Haemaphysalis spinigera.[29]

Their seasonal movements associated with the rains have not been well studied.

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

pitta, (family Pittidae), any of about 30 species of exceptionally colourful Old World birds making up genus Pitta (order Passeriformes). Because of their brilliant plumage, they are sometimes called jewelthrushes. All are stub tailed, long legged, and short necked. They have a rather stout bill and are 15–27 cm (6–11 inches) in length. Most species are found in the Indo-Malayan region, with some ranging to the Solomon Islands; four occur in Australia and two in Africa.

The blue-winged pitta (P. moluccensis), whose wings are not only blue but also emerald, white, and black, is common from Myanmar (Burma) to Sumatra. The eared pitta (P. phayrei) is less colourful but sports deep chestnut hues and a distinctive set of white pointed head plumes.
