Oriental Magpie-Robin

The oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small song bird and one of my regular visitors. These black and white birds forage on the ground or perch conspicuously with the long tail that is held upright.

Here I am presenting a series of pictures clicked on my terrace. This handsome male bird was friendly and never perturbed by my presence.

After the bath he sang beautifully; might have been calling his mate. Female birds are similar with diluted black colour or grey and white coloured plumage.

I will present the pictures of the female another time.
