Bronze Winged Jacana (Metopidius indicus) - A medley of regal colours

What a wonderful combination of colours ! But this bird is interesting from another perspective as well. It is polyandrous. Each female enjoys a harem of anywhere between one to four males and its the male’s responsibility to care for the eggs and the juveniles 🙂

These insectivorous birds are primarily found in India and South East Asia.

  3. Quite a ‘colourful’ bird – in every sense of the word
