p.1 #1 · Another bird-ID please.


I caught this one in the Bandhavgarh National park in India.
I first thought it was a kind of Goldcrest, but they don't appear in that area.
80% crop

Sorry wish I could help with the ID. Super cute little guy. Reminds me of a brown creeper in body shape. Nice catch.

It might be a Common Tailorbird (Orthotomus sutorius) I just Googled Birds of India and it appears to be a juvenile.

Thanks Norm, I'm still not sure but it's by far the closest up to now.
I have the book "Birds of the Indian Subcontinent" and the Common Tailorbird is in it but the adults look very different.
I found some juveniles with Google and some look like this one and some are pretty different.

Chris this is lovely. Isn't it a Crombec of some description? We have 2 in SA that look just like this little chap.
