[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After my return from Delhi with a repaired camera, I went looking for birds on school campus and came across some of them like Red-vented Bulbuls, a Black Drongo and an Oriental Magpie Robin. These are resident birds here. I also saw migratory birds like Wagtails and Hoopoes.
It was a bright and sunny morning and I shot this female Oriental Magpie Robin on a wall with barbed wire on it.

The Oriental Magpie-Robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but now considered an Old World flycatcher. They are distinctive black and white birds with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously. Occurring across most of the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia, they are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests. They are particularly well known for their songs and were once popular as cagebirds. The Oriental Magpie-Robin is the national bird of Bangladesh.
