Oriental Magpie-Robin (Copsychus saularis musicus), Fraser's Hill, Pahang, Malaysia


The Oriental Magpie-Robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small passerine bird 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 national bird for Bangladesh.
