[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Indian Robin (Saxicoloides fulicatus) widely found in Indian sub-continent. They are commonly found perching on low thorny shrubs and rocks. Their long tails are held erect and their chestnut undertail covert and dark body make them easily distinguishable from the Pied Bushchat and the Oriental Magpie Robin.

The Indian Robin is sexually dimorphic in plumage. The males have chestnut undertail coverts and these are visible as the bird usually holds the 6–8 cm long tail raised upright. The females are brownish above, have no white shoulder stripe and are greyish below with the vent a paler shade of chestnut than the males.

Classification:

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Passeriformes
Family: Muscicapidae
Genus: Saxicoloides
Species: fulicatus

Lovely little Robin. Difficult circumstances with a very busy background but you did well to show the details of the bird.

Bonjour Vinay,
Intéressante publication mais la lumière me parait trop forte pour apprécier pleinement la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
