Sitting on a fire bush twig and making call…
Even though these little bird are so common and not afraid of humans, I feel it is one of the most difficult to capture. Reasons are two: firstly, very small in size and secondly, these birds are too active. They won’t take more than 3-4 second on a flower, and then hop to another. I feel the the female birds are more patient than the males and are more easier to photograph. The bird is a common one in India.
Species: Leptocoma zeylonica
Malayalam names: then-kili, soochimukhi
Hope you liked this little bird.
