Cinnamon Black (Rufous Treepie)
The rufous treepie (Dendrocitta vagabunda) is a treepie, native to the Indian subcontinent and adjoining parts of southeast Asia. It is a member of the crow family, Corvidae. It is long tailed and has loud musical calls making it very conspicuous. It is found commonly in open scrub, agricultural areas, forests as well as urban gardens. Like other corvids it is very adaptable, omnivorous and opportunistic in feeding.
The main colour of the body is cinnamon with a black head and the long graduated tail is bluish grey and is tipped in black. The wing has a white patch. The underparts and lower back are a warm tawny-brown to orange-brown in colour with white wing coverts and black primaries. The bill, legs and feet are black. 🕊

White-naped Honeyeater enjoying some rare Melbourne winter sunshine last Sunday🌞. Love the orange crescent above the eye and the distinguishing white nape. A flock of at least 10 of these Honeyeaters were having a feeding frenzy on a flowering eucalyptus tree, which was fun to watch.
