Yellow-billed Blue Magpie It was dreamy watching them glide from one location to other as they open their wings and especially tail feathers as they get wide open and that view is so amazing. Sadly (very sadly) I could not get time to wait for photographing them as I wanted but still could get this record shot as a souvenir from that trip.<br />
I have seen them moving around in a group and very rarely I have seen a solo bird. Again dawn and dusk were the times when these were very active and very rarely in the afternoon they can be seen in the agricultural fields hopping around.

        1. Wow! thanks for the link and I had 3 posts yet to be geotagged! Well, came across my leaf bird post and I cant believe I posted them here 4 years ago and also the interesting comment section where you struggled finding the bird ;-p Posted one year ago
          1. 3 missing out of 163 total is not a bad score. It's a great score and now you've made it perfect.

            Can't recall the thread you mean because now that you've mapped them, they're gone from that link :)

The yellow-billed blue magpie or gold-billed magpie is a passerine bird in the crow and jay family, Corvidae. It forms a superspecies with the Taiwan blue magpie and the red-billed blue magpie. The species ranges across the northern parts of the Indian Subcontinent including the lower Himalayas, with a disjunct population in Vietnam.
