Hi,
 Was at my farm at Shahapur [north of Bombay] today with my friend Jayesh Timbadia.
Bridelia retusa [Asana] trees were laden with fleshy drupes which attracted a number of birds including Yellow-footed Green Pigeons, Red-vented Bulbuls, Common Mynas and Ultramarine Flycatchers {two males & one [or more] females}.
 Enjoyed the better half of the morning watching these dainty flycatchers. Sending a few photographs [the last 2 are Jayesh Timbadia's].
                           With regards,
                             Neil Soares.
