Oriental Magpie-Robin (Copsychus saularis)

It looks like a pied fantail, but it lacks a white ring around its neck.Maybe it is a female? I hope a bird expert is reading this and be kind enough to identify this bird. Thanks in advance.

Photographs taken last October 29, 2013 with a Fujifilm Finepix HS25EXR bridge camera by Dr. Ernesto P. Adorio.

The bird has now been identified as Oriental Magpie-Robin (Copsychus saularis) by Dr. Paul Guerrero,
who says that one can differentiate from the pied fantails. Pied fantails are always fanning their tails and pirouetting and fantails have a white ring around their necks.
