The Pied Bushchat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or other shrubs, looking out for insect prey.

They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment, lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations. Females are predominantly brownish. I clicked this female Pied Bushchat in Noida.

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata

Hello Vinay,

another very good image vy yoy, taken with good of sharpness, pov and nicely blurred bg.
Fine colors.

A very nice shot of the little bird Vinay. Good composition and detail.


I like your composition of the subject with open space to the left in the direction it is facing. A sharp image that shows good detail of the subject. I also like your POV, Contrast, lighting and clarity. The clear BG and DOF ensure this is a quality posting on TN.
