Identification of Nightingale Luscinia megarhynchos

Identification of Nightingale Luscinia megarhynchos



Length approximately 15.5cm.
Upperparts and tail are rufous-brown with perhaps the tail a 'bolder' red depending on light and general view.Best told by unmistakable voice which is disproportionately loud, given the birds' size.
A general grey colouration to the lores, neck and underparts, with a prominant eye-ring (clearly visible in this illustration). Legs pinkish wash. Very shy and secretive prefering low thickets and cover (often damp).
