[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I captured this bird recently during a trek in the Himalayan region.

The plumbeous water redstart (Phoenicurus fuliginosus) is a passerine bird in the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae. It is found in South Asia, Southeast Asia and China. Males are slate blue in colour, while females are grey. The bird's common name refers to its colour which resembles lead. They tend to live near fast-moving streams and rivers.

Hello Ram,
Nice specie with amazing colors close to his relative from Europe(Phoenicurus ochruros).
The best focus is on the left/down corner of the image.
