The Oriental Magpie Robin ( Copsychus saularis ) 19 - 21 cm

The Oriental Magpie Robin is very commonly seen in parks, gardens and open grasslands. this one decided that the afternoon sun is too hot for it's liking and decided to take a dip in the fast moving river. The super cool water is most inviting as it spent a good 15 minutes diving in and out and obviously enjoying the cool respite from the blazing sun. 

Pix below show the utter enjoyment this little fella is having! :-)

Spend some time with nature! Cheers!


  1. Heya, these are a series of really good pics! I can see the enjoyment the magpie is deriving from its splash! Goes to show that even birds need a bathtub!

  2. Thank you very much Aakanksha. Glad you like the pixs.
