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 such bird is around. However, the problem with Rufous Treepie is that it doesn't remain stable at a single place for a long time.

These birds are believed good for some cultivations because they eat 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.
