The Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found  ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About  sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many  island forms. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or  grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or  other shrubs, looking out for insect prey. They pick up insects mainly  from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family  Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment,  lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with  white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations.  Females are predominantly brownish while juveniles are speckled.
