Notes:
1. The males sing beautifully during the breeding season in May-June. It is sought after as a cage bird because of its melodious song. You can hear it here: http://www.xeno-canto.org/19718
2. Coexists with the White-collared Blackbird.
3. Doesn’t seem to react to playback outside of the breeding season.

Do you love birds and trekking? One of our co-founders of this blog has made a trekking app that shows which bird can be found where along certain trekking regions. The app has redefined what a guidebook or a field book can achieve. It shows information on birds, flowers, animals and butterflies in a context sensitive manner. This means that such flora and fauna is attached only to places where they can be seen and are only shown when they can be seen. Find out more.
