Thorughly enjoyed the birds, brilliant photographs, the first magpie that you have captured, I guess we call it Olavalan Kili, they too make different sounds. Surprised that you missed the racket tailed drongo that I was hoping you would have captured considering that they are found in Munnar area too. Drongos are master of imitators, at times you will see only one bird but a variety of calls being heard.

Equally enjoyed the other thread of yours.
The Nehru Park is so vast that you are likely to spot quite a number of non-captive birds, like I spotted a couple of kingfishers and drongos during my short visit.

Thanks for the detailed post, loved reading it. I think I have captured the racket tailed drongo that you are talking about, but captured while in Palakkad. Will search and post it here.

A couple of beauties in black - close-up !
