    Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata)


    Female Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) by alabang, on Flickr

    The Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many island forms. 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 pick up insects mainly from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

    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 while juveniles are speckled.

    I agree with f86sabjf. This is on of my favorites from all the photos you've posted so far. A lot of the other birds you've shared are more exotic looking. But this little guy (or girl) has character!

    Very professionally captured and sharp images. Bird photographs are always better if you captured in direct sunlight.
