Bangladesh, Cox's Bazar, birds on a wire (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Today atop a visable hill I noticed a number of birds perched on a guy wire which supports a telecoms tower.
In the attached photo I was able to ID two Eurasian Collared Doves and a Chestnut Tailed Starling. As well out of the frame even further up the wire were 4 Red-vented Bulbuls.
But distance was too great/my photo was too poor, and I am not able to put any ID to the bird between the Starling and the Doves. It might be another Chestnut Tailed starling, but, as the wire already had 3 different species on it, why not a fouth? Can anyone ID the middle from this shot?
Thanks for your looking,

I agree with your other IDs. Given the angle and quality of the photo I don't think we can be sure about the other bird. If asked to bet, I'd go with another chestnut-tailed starling
