[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Tailorbird (Orthotomus sutorius) is a songbird found across tropical Asia. Popular for its nest made of leaves "sewn" together and immortalized by Rudyard Kipling in his Jungle Book, it is a common resident in urban gardens. Although shy birds that are usually hidden within vegetation, their loud calls are familiar and give away their presence. They are distinctive in having a greenish upper body plumage, long upright tail and the rust coloured forehead and crown. This passerine bird is typically found in open farmland, scrub, forest edges and gardens. Tailorbirds get their name from the way their nest is constructed. The edges of a large leaf are pierced and sewn together with plant fibre or spider silk to make a cradle in which the actual nest is built.

Like most warblers, the Common Tailorbird is insectivorous. The song is a loud cheeup-cheeup-cheeup with variations across the populations. The disyllabic calls are repeated often.

Hallo Foozi
O, how I like the neat "combed" feathers of this Common Tailorbird. Further to that I agree with what Luciano has said about the point of view and also with Maurizio with the atmosphere. It is a different type of presentation, but for sure a pleasant one. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Salaam Ya Foozi,
Some thing amazing I see here, you track beautiful species and I'm feel cold here in below zero, it is superb shot in beautiful colours, TFS.

My favourite bird, Foozi. Looks like you captured this shot in inclement weather. Nevertheless, a good shot under the circumstances.
I will take the liberty of fiddling with it through a Workshop, mainly to remove the BG noise. Hope you will not mind.

well done my friend.

Salam Foozi.
I like how this little tailorbird is groomed and looks neat with the plume. The dorsal pov and the head-turn is beautiful against the silenced lavender background.
Fine capture and thanks for sharing.
