      Thanks for posting the information on this bird. I found this bird in a neighborhood in Kolkata, near the Airport. This is really a very attractive bird. I see this bird in pair on the trees and rooftops near my house. I have seen this bird in many parts of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Nepal. I have read that this bird nibbles small pieces of flesh from the tooth of tigers, and the tiger doesn’t harm it. This is so amazing. Thanks again!
