|Male White-rumped Shama|
The shamas (from shama, Hindi for C. malabaricus) are medium-sized insectivorous birds (some also eat berries and other fruit) in the genera Copsychus and Trichixos. They were formerly in the thrush family Turdidae, but are more often now treated as part of the Old World flycatcher Muscicapidae.
These are Asian garden and forest dwelling species.
