[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was literally chasing this Robin in the forest areas of Sattal, as it was hoping from one bush to the other in search of insects. Finally found one & settled down on a twig in front of me.

A very common bird - The Oriental Magpie Robin. Widespread resident of the subcontinent; but not common in the northwest. In all plumages has white stripes on wings all the way to the long cocked tail. Males have glossy blue-black heads, breast & upperparts. Females have bluish grey heads, breast & upperparts.

voice: Long spirited & varied whistling song.

Bonsoir Satirtha,
Le téléobjectif écrase légèrement le sujet qui est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
