The oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but now considered an Old World flycatcher. They are distinctive black and white birds with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously. They are particularly well known for their songsand were once popular as cagebirds. This widespread species magpie-robin is a resident breeder in Labuan Island. Magpie robins breed mainly from January to June in south-east Asia.
