[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A picture of the yellow breasted Greenfinch basking in the early morning Sun. Not an ideal perch to get a good photo but did not have any option as the bird was sitting high above on an high tension electric wire. Cropped a bit to do away with the unwanted blank spaces.

Resident of the Himalayas & NE India. Males have blackish-olive upperparts, yellow supercilium, crescent behind ear-coverts, yellow underparts & rumps.
Habitat: Open forest, shrub and cultivation with nearby trees.
Voice: Twittering followed by a harsh tsswee.

Thanks for viewing.

Hello Satirtha,
Under the circumstances you did a fine job of capturing this lovely Greenfinch in an attractive resting pose. We all (especially me) want to photograph our subjects on that perfect perch, but in the wild it is often take what you get or lose the chance. You did well in this instance. A beautiful specimen.

Pangot is a real gold mine of wild life, Satirtha. Don't recall seeing this bird anywhere in my native Himachal Pradesh. Good shot from ground perspective with catch-light in the bird's eye.
The colours on it are a sort of mix of yellow and brown -- not exactly eye-catching but real.

Hello Satirtha,
Nice specie of bird. Amazing green-yellow colors.
