Rufous Treepie

Here is another bird we have seen before, but never managed a decent shot - the Rufous Treepie.

It is quite a conspicuous bird, with its distinctive colour and tail. It was rather a surprise to learn that it belongs to the crow family!

We saw this bird at Chittorgarh.I was busy photographing the monuments, when a sudden movement caught my eye. I turned, and having the camera in my hand, started clicking away. This seemed to surprise our driver, because he called out to me, "Madam, aap kahan photo nikal rahe ho? Tower toh wahan pe hai!" (Madam, what are you photographing? the tower is there!) The sound was enough to scare the bird away, but thankfully I had enough shots to keep me happy!
