The Rufous Treepie (Dendrocitta Vagabunda) Pictures and Detail (Beautiful Long Tailed Bird) 


The first time, I saw Rufous Treepie was when I followed its musical calls. I was sitting in my room and I heard sweet musical calls of a bird; therefore, i decided to move out and capture its pictures. 

This was my first encounter with Rufous treepie and it resulted in the picture above. The best thing, I found about this bird was its great musical calls which makes it easy for you to feel its presence.

The Rofous Treepie is one of common bird of the crow (Corvidae) family. I mostly found this bird alone and it doesn't seem to be afraid of humans much.

The best way to recognize Rufous Treepie is through its long tail and loud musical calls. I like their musical calls and enjoy them when one of such bird is around. However, the problem with Rufous Treepir is that it doesn't remain stable at a single place for a long time.

Sometimes, we can notice this bird in urban homes looking for insects in the electricity pipe holes. In general, they are found in agricultural lands, villages and forests. The Roufous Treepie has a white Patch on their wings. 

These birds are found throughout India, though, in Himalayan region, we find its other variety i.e. Grey Treepie

The sexes of Rufous Treepie are alike. They also found in Myanmar, Laos and Thailand. These birds, mainly eat fruits, seeds, insects, small reptiles etc. These birds are very adaptive and opportunistic in nature like crows. In general, we can say that their behavior is quite similar to crows. 

These birds are believed good for some cultivations because they eat the harmful insects. Rufous Treepie can come very close to human beings.

Rufous Treepie is one of the common home visiting birds; though, they are not very common like Crows and Myna. When they are not making musical calls, then they do their work very silently and we hardly notice them.

The long Tail is characteristic of Rufous Treepie and we can find a black tip at its end. It is very interesting to see this bird from below when they fly with their wings open. 

In the picture below, you can see a Rufous Treepie looking for insects in an open hole in the pipe.

Rufous Treepie also help many animals like deer by eating irritants from their body. In general, Rufous Treepie looks to be a very useful bird which cleans our system and sometimes entertain us with its sweet voice.
