Oriental Magpie Robin – Chick Feeding Time

Oriental Magpie Robin – Chick Feeding Time

The Oriental magpie-robin is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but now considered an Old World flycatcher.

They are distinctive black and white birds with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously.

Occurring across most of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia, they are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests. They are particularly well known for their songs and were once popular as cagebirds.

The oriental magpie-robin is considered the national bird of Bangladesh.
