Oriental Magpie Robin

Oriental Magpie Robin: Sultanpur National Park, India, March 2023 — One of the most common birds of the Indian countryside, the Oriental Magpie Robin is in fact wildly distributed from the Himalayas south through India and west to the pacific shores of China and Malaysia. It is a perky little bird with a large repertoire of songs…even imitating the calls and songs of other local birds. It used to be classed with the thrushes, but is now considered an “old world flycatcher”. Even the deep morning mirk of Sultanpur could not diminish the joy of this bird.
