[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brown Rock Chat is a resident bird on my school campus. I shot it today morning.

The brown rock chat or Indian chat (Oenanthe fusca) is a bird in the chat (Saxicolinae) subfamily and is found mainly in northern and central India. It is often found on old buildings and rocky areas. It resembles a female Indian robin but lacks the reddish vent and differs in posture and behaviour apart from being larger. In flight it bears some resemblance to thrushes and redstarts. It feeds on insects, captured mainly on the ground. It was formerly placed as the sole species in the genus Cercomela but is now included with the wheatears in the genus Oenanthe.

On a DX body there we count the focal length, no doubt about the sharpness and perfect color, well shot.

Hello Ram,
Nice specie of bird. Excellent details and focus. In my country migrates in the summer his cousin Oenanthe Oenanthe.

Hi Ram,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Brown Rock Chat. The light is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
