nice shot with lovely light to give a good contrast.
The branches give a good graphical composition.
The yellow plumage works nice here.

A very beautiful composition and very fine colors for this bird-picture.
It's an artistical picture for me. May be the sharpness could be a tiny better, but here my eyes are more attracted by the beautiful presentation.
A nice, well composed capture taken from a fine POV in its natural habitat of what is more likely to be a Common Iora.
My reasons for thinking that it is not a grey -headed canary flycatcher are:
This flycatcher is winter visitor to parts of N. India and is resident in the Western Ghats. It is not yet winter where you took this.
The grey-headed canary Flycatcher has a grey throat as well as head.
The Common Iora is common, widespread and variable, though the wing appears to be too yellow for a normal form of common iora.
Thanks and all the best,

As you know I've lived in India for several years & have travelled from East to West/North to Ceylon. I had never seen this lovely species.
Great photography work.
Educative notes too.
Friendly & warm greetings inspite of the intense COLD here,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Grey-headed Canary-flycatcher. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
