    Default Black-headed Bunting male

    It breeds in south-east Europe east to Iran and migrates in winter mainly to India, with some individuals moving further into south-east Asia. It is very uncommon in West Bengal as per distribution map of bunting migration.
    It was clicked on October, 2016 in the river bank of Damodar, Barddhaman, West Bengal. Still they are staying there.

    Nice to see this. Typically when do you see them first in your area?

    The eye contact is fine. How much of a crop is this? The neck area has got blurred. Did you do some background editing? Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    Thanks for your observations....
    I have located the bird on 20/10/16.
    I cropped the image up to 42 percent.
    I did not edit the background with blurring effect. I increased the shadow little bit....

    Nice perch and eye contact. Liked the catch light on the eye. Wish it was closer for more details. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice image, good head turn with catch light in the eye. You may think of compiling the list of Birds on Damodar river bank. Thanks for sharing.
