[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot last month in Southern Pakistan when this little brown rock-chat was enjoying the first rays of rising sun.I really liked the glow caused by low angle sun rays.
The Brown Rock Chat or Indian Chat (Cercomela fusca) is a bird in the chat (Saxicolinae) subfamily and is found mainly in northern and central India. It is often found on old buildings and rocky areas. It resembles a female Indian Robin but lacks the reddish vent and differs in posture and behaviour apart from being larger. In flight it bears some resemblance to thrushes and redstarts. It feeds on insects, captured mainly on the ground. Those few lines were from Wikipedia.
Thanks for viewing,
Best Regards

I like this image. Wonderfull morning light, and a nice blurred
background looks good to the tan colors of the bird. nice and clear
with good focus on the eye.

Hello Akbar,
Nice capture.Bath in the warm sunlight...
Good details and colour,
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Akbar,

Hope you are well. I am sorry I have missed commenting on the photos of a lot of my friends here despite the fact that I have watched them all.... a pity indeed!
This is absolutely superb! I am all praise except one thing that this is the female of Pied Bush Chat and is not a Brown Rock Chat, just a humble opinion....please do double check at my advice.
It is an adorable little shot of excellent clarity.Thanks for sharing,

warm regards,


Such an intimate shot; LOVE!!! Detail and lighting pure excellence

Hello Akbar,
A very interesting specie. Lovely colors and details.
They are a very few birds in my region at the moment....The migratory birds are gone....I am waiting for spring and I hope they will return as usual....
Thanks for sharing!
