[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had shot this resident bird on my school campus in January 2015.

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.

Hello Ram,
Your pretty Mag-pie Robin stands straight and tall in a typical Robin posture. Such a lovely bird with nice markings and rich bluish black colors. Great job capturing the catchlight in its eyes.
