[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Ioras ('Aegithinidae') are a small (11.515.5 cm) family of four passerine bird species found in India and southeast Asia. Overall the males are larger than the females. These are reminiscent of the bulbuls, but whereas that group tends to be drab in colouration, the ioras are more brightly coloured. The group exhibits sexual dimorphism in its plumage, with the males being brightly plumaged in yellows and greens. Unlike the leafbirds, ioras have thin legs, and their bills are proportionately longer.

Now I can say my bad luck. this nice bird also present at Santiniketan, I found them several times but unable to take a good picture. Just few days(around 15days)before two birds are moving around my house, they ware make a nest in my house mango tree, when I locate that nest, the chicks are flown away. So, I missed a great chance. Maybe next season I will be able!

Another beautiful photo of an interesting bird Joy! Nice pose, very good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Joy,
A wonderful shot of this colorful Iora. It reminds me somewhat of a cross between our Gold Finches and Yellow Warblers.
You have captured it perfectly in it's natural habitat of attractive green foliage. Excellent clarity and nice eye contact with that ever sought after glint of catch light.
