Hi Narayanan,
Nice shot of this beautiful and colorful bird. Details, lighting and composition nice. TFS
have a nice Sunday

Hello Narayanan,
Good idea to shot this magnificent bird. I like this framing and colours of the bird which make it a little funny. Congratulations

Hi Ganesh,
This is capture wise much better than the previous one. Though a little PP is required. I tried a little but due to not an expert in PP I couldn't get a satisfactory result. I am in a hurry now I will come back and give it another try. Anyway good capture of this Pied Myna. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Ganesan,
Nice picture. Composition and details are good. Sorry I can't help you with the ID.
TFS, Smitha.

Hi Ganesh,
you always post a wide range of creatures which is brilliant. This is another unusual bird which, I'm sorry about, I don't know the identity of.
Sharp and well composed with a great POV.
Well done,

hi gannu,
nice capture,i feel that the cropping of the pipe may yield better composition, nice pov, good pode captured,
tfs & regards

Hi Ganesan,

Nice capture, good composition too. I can see bit of purple colour fringing which can be removed in PP. Thanks for sharing.
Regards, Anil

Hello Ganesh,
Nice fairly sharp capture of an Asian Pied Starling (Sturnus contra). Nice composition near to what looks like its nest and fine lighting and BG.
I have not seen this species in India myself so it is nice to see that you caught it so well.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Ivan has identified this bird as Pied Starling, Ganesan. I think you need to put together a good note on the species.
The picture is well taken, giving a fine view of the bird's major features. I like the orange coloured beak and ring around the eye.
The pole looks sordid, so even if you had cropped it off, it would not affect the appeal of the bird image.
