Hill Myna from Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary, Assam

When I was visiting the Hoolongopar Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam, the only thing in my mind was the Hoolock Gibbon and the other rare species of primates. Even though I am a very passionate birder, birds were not on top of my head here as I was about to see the only Ape of India.

But, I guess you can never take the love for birds from a true birder. While I was walking through the forests, I spotted this hill myna sitting on the top branch of a tree. It looked nice and beautiful and colourful against the clear blue sky.

And then I got so engrossed in it that I started taking multiple pictures of it. This Hill Myna was also helpful to the cause and stood there posing for a long while.

Here are some more pictures of the Hill Myna from the Gibbon Sanctuary of Assam in North East India.
