White-rumped Shama

Copsychus malabaricus

They sing a variety of loud calls and often mimic other birds. One of the first recordings ever made of bird song was of this species in 1889. Though shy, they are territorial and share that territory with their mate. Males with longer tails appear to have larger territories.
