Pheasant-tailed jacana, In non-breeding plumage

I found this Pheasant-tailed Jacana, in non-breeding plumage at Lalbandh , Santinetan, which is a big lake and near my residence. At Lalbandh you can found many birds and insects as I mentioned earlier, you can also observe their daily life, behavior , style of food collection etc. Here in this picture we can see a Pheasant-tailed Jacana is busy to preening her feather.

Birds use their beaks to preen or clean and arrange their feathers. Enormous concentration and time is spent oiling and cleaning feathers, which is a birdís most vital tool. Birds will often bathe to assist with cleaning.

Thank you for viewing and valuable comments.

Family : Jacanidae, Genus: Hydrophasianus, Species: Hydrophasianus chirurgus

Woow Samiran,the choice of point of view is fantastic,the effect of this ground perspective is really magnificent,a great way to show us this specie cleaning its plumage,great details,colors and 2 spectacular ninpheas on the right too.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Samiran,
Good photograph of this beautiful bird, good sharpness of details, good composition, fair background

This is perhaps one of the most artistic pictures to have embellished this otherwise rather matter-of-fact photo sharing site, Mr Nandy. This is an amazing eye-level perspective in perfect light conditions. The bird and the water lilies complement each other beautifully in this composition.
Congratulations for creating this lovely image and thanks for sharing it. 100/100 points!!!!!

Hello Samiran,

Hello Samiran,
What a perfectly composed picture. Love the two parts of the picture, the flowers and the beautiful bird. A scene like we imagine in paradise! Most beautiful light too.
My favourite, indeed.
Kind regards

Ciao Samiran.
Splendida foto in tutto il suo insieme,grande nitidezza dei tre soggetti principali,stupendi i colori con le loro sfumature,eccellente la composizione molto bella complimenti.
Ciao Marco.

Fine viewpoint, composition and pose by the beautiful bird..only the out of focus dry leaf in the foreground is bit distracting the image, wish it was not there. better luck next time..you are lucky to be visiting such a wonderful location, tfs.
