The Hooded Pitta, Pitta sordida is a passerine bird. It is common in eastern and southeastern Asia and the Malay Archipelago and lives in different types of forests as well as on plantations and other cultivated areas.

Hooded Pittas can reach a length of 16 to 19 cm and a weight of 42 to 70 g. Their diet consists of various insects (including their larvae), which they hunt on the ground, and berries. In the breeding period, which lasts from February to August, they build nests on the ground; both parent take care of the eggs and the fledglings.

In captivity, hooded pittas mix well with other species. In London Zoo they are kept in large glass-walled tanks with white eyes and montserrat orioles while at Jersey they are in a large walk-through exhibit with birds such as Palawan Peacock-pheasants and White-rumped Shamas.
