Ashy Minivet

Pericrocotus divaricatus

Ashy Minivet, Bangalore

A long distant migrant and one of the surprise find of the 2015-16 winter around Bangalore. For a bird that is rare even a cluttery image like this will work :-). The male is grey above and whitish below. It has a black cap with a white forehead and there is a white band across the flight-feathers. The outer tail feathers are white. The bill and feet are black.
