Common Iora (Aegithina tiphia)

I was very surprised when my son (Firdaus) told me that he found the nestling Common Iora, just outside my car park.
The nest is at the "jambu" (Guava, Psidium sp) tree, about 10 feet height, at the branch where my neighbor park her car underneath it.
The place is so busy, with children running around and playing street soccer.
I failed to see the nest because it is well hidden and camouflage under the jambu leaves. The chicks colour is also same with leaves - yellow-green.

Firdaus heard a soft repetitive sound. He took a bin and have been observing it for two evening .

The nest is small, loose, cup-shaped. It is made out of grass and other fibres felted together and thickly coated externally with cobwebs.

This is a very good shot -- interesting composition, correctly exposed, and very sharp. Gary

Assalamualaikum Rezlan. Now you have hit the spot with excellent sharp quality of the image. I like the quality of this top drawer shot with the eyes are very clear. Well timed shot and good framing even with the tail chopped off. Best regards. Jusni

Hello Redzlan,

Well composed and interesting shot!
You catch well definite and lovely moment.
The spectacle that two child birds in the nest are calling out toward mom is pretty, and green leaves of the background give a good effect on total color combination.
