White-Rumped Shama

Getting this guy on camera was tricky - this is the one and only photo I was able to take.  He was one of two White-Rumped Shamas that kept darting in and out of the shrubs in a corner of Foster Botanical Garden today.  These shamas can be identified by their orange underbelly - unfortunately you can just barely see a sliver of the orange feathers here!


  1. Birds are tricky Lisa, they move so fast but you've done an excellent job here, he is a little beauty!

  2. I figure anything smaller than a duck is not easy with the standards lenses that most people have. From experience I know only too well that your photo is pretty good. As PDP says he is a beauty bit like a more colourful magpie. Paul at Leeds in Yorkshire photography
