[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot of the Pied Bushchat was taken earlier this year in Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary.

The Pied Bushchats are widespread residents on the subcontinent. The male is all black except for white rump and a patch on wing. Females have dark brown upperparts & rufous brown underparts with rufous orange rumps. The Females in peninsula & Sri lanka are darker & more prominently streaked than in north.

Hello Satirtha,
Your Pied Bushchat is certainly an attractive fellow. I like the coal black plumage he wears in contrast to his white rump and wing patch. You managed to capture cute facial features with a glimpse of catchlight in it's eye.
Perched so contently amongst the thorny branches he presented a wonderful opportunity for you to obtain this beautiful shot. Well done!!
