[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all,
Today i was looking for weaver bird's nests and activity around Bangalore. What i found was this ! Silverbills usually nest in abandoned Baya weaver's nest and this one was actually refurbishing the weaver bird's nest.

The Indian Silverbill or White-throated Munia (Lonchura malabarica) is a small passerine bird found in the Indian Subcontinent and adjoining regions that was formerly considered to include the closely related African Silverbill (Lonchura cantans).

Es admirable como en tus fotografías no sólo retratas a un animal o animales, sino también que haces un relato de su interacción con el resto de la naturaleza, de su lucha por la supervivencia, de su conducta. Congratulations...

Hello Goutham,
beautiful capture of this Silverbill taken by a great POV; excellent sharpness and natural colours. Well done! Regards Siggi

Very very cute capture of this Silverbill with a twig in its beak, Goutham.
The view of its nest and its gaze turned towards it makes this picture a masterpiece of sorts.
Thanks for sharing this fantastic capture.

Wow, this is fantastic! And it is immediately clear what he is doing. What a beautiful sharp image and interesting activity so well shown. The composition is excellent and so is the choice of portrait format. Well done Goutham. Truly a pleasure to view.

Hello Goutham,
What a neat capture of this beautiful little Silverbill getting ready to fly up to it's nest with some new material.
I really like the way the nest and bird are perfectly focused while everything else is a tad blurred. The bird actually looks like it is studying the nest in order to see where it wants to place the twig. Great capture!!
