Peking Nightingale/ Japanese Robin Bird Breed


Pekin Nightingale

A bird with musical charm is the Peking Nightingale or Japanese Robin (Leiothrix lutea). His song is the richest and warmest full-throated warble of any of the commonly imported softbills. It has much of the quality with which an American robin greets the sun on an April morning after an all-night rain. The Pekings must come from a long line of sun worshippers, because as soon as the first streak of dawn appears, they begin their serenades.

The Peking is a lovely bird to see, as well as hear. Although the basic color is olive, one is so impressed with the face and the breast that he is inclined to describe the bird as yellow or orange. The wings have red, yellow, and orange feathers, also. The beak is peculiarly shaped; it is long and narrow and cherry red.

Pekings are a fast bird. They seem to change positions without moving. His speed is fantastic.

The Peking mixes welll with other birds. Feeding is simple. They consume a lot of fruit and mealworms, plus and insectivorous mixture. They live long and well on such a diet. They are about seven inches long.
