Rufous-backed Shrike

Lanius schach


Very colourful bird. Rust, black and white is a striking combination.


Rajarhaat, an upcoming suburb of Kolkata. Still rich in open-land, grass, reed, waterbodies, and lots and lots of weedy vegetation.


Looks like Black-headed tricolor reported earlier from Kolkata and the photo in Wikipedia. Wikipedia also says, " Lanius schach tricolor, is sometimes called the black-headed shrike."
