|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is probably a great reed warbler and oversized in its class - matching the thrush in that respect. I went to look for (and probably to catch for, through the lens) a eurasian jay who is amongst our nearest avian neighbour. But I could find only this. May be next time!|
NB: Feel free to inform me - if I have got the nomenclature wrong - I am far from being an ornithological expert! :)

nicely taken a and good closeup. the shadows gives a magical effect.
Vibrant gray on striking blue background. Enjoy looking at his soft feathers and bristly little head. So glad you shared this
It would be absolutely "huge" for a Reed-Warbler.
So, what is it? It is a Bulbul.
Ixos [Microscelis] amaurotis amaurotis. Brown-eared Bulbul.

Hello, a very special POV looking up at the bird. Nice blur effects of the fg and bg. Good color and lighting to make an overall special photo of this bird.
Great portrait with fine details. Good work.
Nice close shot with beautiful perch against the blue sky. Good plumage details and TFS.
