Photoshoot session with the Pied Fantail

Pied Fantail (Rhipidura javanica)
Family : Rhipidurinae - Fantail Flycatcher

 At Zone C, I was able to have a photoshoot session with the Pied Fantail.  The Pied Fantail is the only species of fantail to visit gardens or parks.  It is obviously not easy to photograph it because it has the habit of moving about the branches in jerky movements.  Furthermore it has a peculiar habit of down dropping its wings as if in suicidal fashion.  An interesting  feature is the presence of a dark grey breast-band.  The flycatcher feeds on insects.
