This is the female-bird of the Mayna with a gray belly is it's recognized best mark.
Those birds always come in pers: once you spot the female - the male is around somewhere as well: so, next pic. is the male on same tree / diff. branch.
1. On this Jacaranda tree – I also taken the "Woodpecker" photo posted May 6th'10.
2. *** I posted thses birds by mistake as a Shahrur , so I added a correction.

Hello Ike, I like your display of this bird with the jacaranda blooms in the tree. Not familiar with the bird, but I have two of these trees in my yard. I haven't seen your posts recently or maybe you haven't been posting as often. I try to at least critigue pictures from individuals I have added to my favorites, but I guess it is also the time of day when one surfs the gallery. Anyway have a good Sunday. It is probably almost over by now. Regards, Roger

Hello my friend.
Since returning from my vacation, this beautiful image that seems to convey the song of the bird.
A beautiful mix of branches, leaves and the flowers with this beautiful color. Bright picture with the charm of nature.

Hello Ike, I am happy to see you also have jacarandas in Tel Aviv. Of course, being a coastal city to the Mediterranean it's normal. The bird looks very elegant and proud against the purple coloured jacaranda blossoms. I really liked it. Congratulations, Tolga

Wonderful portrait of a beautiful bird in a bright, sunny day at the flower tree. These purple flowers in the background are wonderful.
ערב טוב. דיוקן נפלא של יפה ציפור בהיר ושטוף שמש, יום ב פרח העץ. אלה פרחים סגולים ברקע נהדרים. בברכה

"Milady" chose the elegant magenta decor adorned of its complementary green color as backdrop for showing the best of her plumage and a graceful carriage of the head!
