White-rumped Shama

Shama was on of the thirty Guards of the Biblical King David- the bird for most of the time that I saw, was just like a guard, alert and ready for action. The first photograph, was one of the rare one off relaxing White-rumped Shama ( Copsychus malabaricus ), just after a bath. The bird, behaves and looks much like a larger magpie-robin, with rust coloured underside, instead of white. The bird is a lovely singer and quite shy, it took a lot of time for it to get used to my presence.  Photographed at Ganeshgudi in Karnataka
