[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Iora (Aegithina tiphia) is a small passerine bird found across the tropical Indian Subcontinent with populations showing plumage variations, some of which are designated as subspecies. A species found in scrub and forest, it is easily detected from its loud whistles and the bright colours. During the breeding season, males display by fluffing up their feathers and spiral in the air appearing like a green, black, yellow and white ball.
Ioras have a pointed and notched beak with a culmen that is straight. The Common Iora is sexually dimorphic, males in the breeding season have a black cap and back adding to a black wing and tail at all seasons. Females have greenish wings and an olive tail. The undersides of both are yellow and the two white bars on the wings of the male are particularly prominent in their breeding plumage.

Hello Foozi

Excellent close-up photo of this bird with his
beautiful eye-contact, fine POV and framing, TFS


Hi Foozi,

The leaves and the branch are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Common Iora. The combination of the morninmg and the light of the flash have a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.


Salam Foozi.
Lovely perch and a fine catch with this strong lens. The details are amazing and I really like the artistic approach in this composition.
Thanks and kind regards.
