Wildlife Photo: Ryukyu Robin a Bird Found Only in Okinawa
This is an adult male Ryukyu Robin (Erithacus komadori), a bird found only in Okinawa. Locally, they are called Akahige (Red+beard). BirdLife International lists this species as endangered and this photo was published by BIRDFORUM and ORIENTAL BIRD CLUB IMAGES, not because of any technical excellence but, more for helping identify a rare breed of wildlife.
