Birds in Neighbourhood - 6

I get to see variety of birds around my parents house in Udupi. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is Rufous Treepie



It is found mostly in Indian subcontinent. The main color of the body is cinnamon with a black head and the long graduated tail is grey and is tipped in black. The wing has a white patch. The bill, legs and feet are black.



It is an agile bird clinging and clambering through the branches. 




This is a omnivore bird that feeds almost completely in trees on fruits, seeds, small reptiles and the eggs and young of birds.

What a nice-looking bird. Wish they didn't eat the young, but I guess that's Nature's balance.
