I found this Grey Bushchat sitting on the perch in the morning. The bird was sitting with its back turned towards me & I couldn't really get in front to capture the frontal view. I had to wait for some time before I could get this shot when the bird turned its head fractionally. Had to do a bit of post processing to bring out the different shades.

Info on Grey Bushchat:

The grey bush chat (Saxicola ferreus) is a species of passerine bird in the family Muscicapidae. It is found in the Himalayas, southern China and northern Southeast Asia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. The male has white supercilium and dark mask; upperparts grey to almost black. The underparts are whitish with grey breasts and flanks. Females have buff supercilium with dark brown ear coverts.

Thanks for viewing.

Ciao Satirtha, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose on beautiful blurry BG, perfect focus, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

As a matter of fact, the rear view of the bird gives a perfect impression of its plumage, Satirtha.
The perch and the Bushchat stand out beautifully against a flawless BG.
Thanks for sharing another lovely picture from your days in Pangot.

Hello Satirtha,
Great shot of this Grey Bushchat. I like this particular POV as we can see its beautifully marked plumage from an attractive rear perspective. We also get a fine view of its facial features as well. The BG is very nice and your exposure is right on the money. Well done!!
