Hello Joy,
Although the ID is difficult for this bird, I think you are right.
Very nice photo in excellent sharpness and natural colours. Good choice of composition. Nice contrast against the light background.

Hallo joy
very nicepose of this bird with good details and beautiful colours
thanks greeting lou

Hello Joydeb,

Hope you are doing fine.This is indeed an excellent shot of Brown Rock Chat or Indian Chat (Cercomela fusca) so you are right about the identity of the bird.The sharpness is not of that quality which your other photos possess but nothing can rob this photo of its beauty and grace. Thanks a lot for sharing.....take care....warm regards/Abid

Hi Joy,the best pose as i possible i think....very elegant profile and excellent details and colors in a difficult clear background,excellent work.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello Joy

Beautiful photo of the Indian Chat, fine lateral
POV at its level and obtaining his lovely eye-contact,
beautiful light, excellent focus, sharpness, details, TFS


what a beauty you capture. good side view with very perfect colour is key point of this nice picture.
blurry BG is another good character of this pic.
regarding the ID it is really difficult to say it is Cercomela fusca, because Cercomela fusca is available mainly in Pakistan and N India (according to Birds of Indian Sub-Continent by R. Grimmett, C. Inskipp, Tim Inskipp) any way if it is Cercomela fusca then it is your achievement to spot it in the Tarai of W.B.
Best wishes,

鳥很可愛 端莊秀麗 由若美人一般站立

Hi Joy,
I like this bird. Interesting point of view. A lot of details. Nice composition.
Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Joy.
Excellent bird shot from the side profile. Nicely captured plumage details with fine tone against beautifully silenced background.
Thanks and kind regards.

Namaskar Joy

This is a Pied Bush chat female. The beak of the Brown rock chat is slightly curved downward at the end which is not seen in this picture. Also the markings around the eyes of the bird in the photo is typical of a Pied Bush chat. Also Brown rock chat would normally not be found in your region. The pied bush chat would have slight streaks in the front. Not the best sharpness but nice picture in its typical pose.


Hello Joydeb Da,
I haven't seen this specie before.'Barobisha'-ta kothae?I haven't heard this place name too.
Thanks for this picture.
Valo theko,

Bonjour Joydeb,
Très belle attitude du sujet mais il me semble qu'il manque un peu de profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
