Blue magpie - A rare sight in the suburbs of Dehradun

While playing cricket in the garden with my brother on a rather cold & chilly morning,I heard an uncommon call coming from the mango tree across the road.On further scrutiny,a bird with a long tail & bright plumage appeared,making shrieking calls.Without a second thought,I quickly ran inside and came out with my camera.Knowing that the bird wouldn't be there for long,I tried to capture it in my camera as it flew out of the woods and perched on one of the cables.As soon as I had taken a pic,it went out of sight after being chased by the crows.A wonderful start to the day indeed !
