July 14, 2017 – Pied Bush Chat, Pied Bushchat, or Pied Stonechat (Saxicola caprata)

These chats are found in western Asia, central Asia, and Southeast Asia. They eat mostly small insects and insect larvae, including caterpillars, moths, midges, and ants. Often seen alone near villages and cultivated land, they hunt from exposed perches, flying down to catch prey on the ground. Their nests are constructed from grass and hair, in hollows in the earth, shallow depressions under bushes, or crevices in man-made structures. Females incubate the eggs and both parents feed the chicks.
