Common Iora (Aegithina tiphia)
Local name: Burung Kunyit Kecil
Size (cm): 15
Habitat: Parks, wooded areas

Perched on top of 'Rambutan' tree about 10 feet from my backdoor.

The smallest in their family, these birds are so successful because of their varied diet. They eat mainly insects. Restless, active hunters, Common Ioras search for insects from leaves in the upper storeys of trees, sometimes even hanging upside down from branches. They may also catch insects on the wing. Occasionally, they may eat fruits such as the berries of epiphytes growing in tall trees (e.g., mistletoe). They feed in pairs or small groups. Like other Ioras, they are noisy and active, and may sing almost all the time.

Hi Tabib,

This is a great shot. I love the colours and light and you have captured a great pose; set off perfectly by great composition. The leaves at the bottom of the picture give the shot a good base, and the dof provides the perfect backdrop. Superb.

Graet DOF and beautiful colours, very nice composition.

Assalamualaikum Rezlan,
I've spotted this bird many times but never quite get a clear shot at it. This is very well spotted away from the busyness of the foliage. Very well perched exposing the details of the underside of this beauty. You have captured the head area and plumage in flawless details. Well done and have a nice day.

Hi Tabib
Wonderful capture
Fine sharpness and detail
Nice color and composition

Hello Redzlan,

Well composed and great exposure/sharpness!
Judging from the seen standpoint, I think that it is this bird and the leaf is
a just good size in whole. And it's wonderful contrast between the front and background.

Thanks for sharing!
