bird at window 2

The flats opposite to my new lodgings have hazy glasses on their windows, one of the windows stays permanently closed and I often notice a wall lizard on the inner side of that window.

A month ago I noticed this guy trying his/her best to catch that lizard. Sadly before I could take another picture a car passed by and he flew off!

Do you know what bird it is? It is as big as Koyel, but its wing are yellowish orange, very cute color. I have seen this bird only here in Kolkata, never seen it before, anywhere in Burdwan or my ancestral home either, or anywhere else at all…

Any ideas about what bird it is?
