    Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata)


    Female Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) by alabang, on Flickr

    The Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many island forms. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or other shrubs, looking out for insect prey. They pick up insects mainly from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

    They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment, lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations. Females are predominantly brownish while juveniles are speckled.

    Nice photo. How are you Paolo?
    What does the 320, off, did not fire, and manual mean? What are those settings?

    its probably copied from the file's EXIF data. the 320 should be the ISO, the 'did not fire' is referring to the flash not being fired for the shot, and manual is his exposure mode most likely.
