Hello Abhirup,
Just when you think you have seen every kind of starling there is, you come up with this beautiful specimen. I have never seen this particular species before, but what a pretty bird it is.
It's orange breast reminds me so much of the American Robin we have here in Ohio. It's light slate blue wing, creamy white face and blue eyes is certainly attractive.
You have done a wonderful job on focus while DOF is excellent. Well done!!
