These clicks are taken from various locations from 10 feet to 100 feet from my home in Warora (Dist: Chandrapur).

A vary familiar bird. It is amazing to see that the wings which are white during flight, appear grey-brownish when folded. The male and female are similar for this species. See interesting images in slideshow.
