Blue Coua

(coua caerulea)
The entire Coua family is endemic to Madagascar. The Blue Coua is found in rain forest in the east and north-east of the island. It is a difficult bird to get close to and is most often only seen as it is flying away. When seen well it is a particularly handsome bird with an overall dark blue plumage and a bright blue patch of bare skin around the eyes.
