The pittas are all similar to each other in general disposition and habits. Previously, they were often placed in one genus, although, since 2009 and up to the present, this family has been divided into three genera: Pitta, Erythropitta and Hydrornis... The name comes from the Telugu word for pitta, which is common in southern India, and denotes a common local name for all small birds. By passerine standards, pita birds are medium-sized, 15 to 25 cm long. Dense, with a compact teardrop-shaped body, they have strong and high legs. They are characterized by very short tails and a powerful, slightly curved beak. Many, but not all, have brightly colored plumage.

These are mainly terrestrial birds collecting food on damp forest litter. They feed on molluscs, insects, and other invertebrates. Pitta are mostly solitary. When nesting, they lay up to six eggs in a large spherical nest, which is built in trees or bushes, or sometimes directly on the ground. Both the male and the female take part in caring for the offspring. Many pitta species are migratory.

Human interaction

A number of pitta species are endangered. One of them, Pitta Gurney, is listed in the IUCN Red List, eight more have the status of “vulnerable species”. The main threat to pittas is habitat destruction due to rapid deforestation.

During migration, pittas often appear in the most unexpected places, such as backyard gardens.
