Babies!!!!!.......................

A few days ago, I noticed a Common Tailorbird /Orthotomus sutorius/බට්ටිච්චා coming to a shrub by the driveway over and over again. Curious,  I went and peeked in to the shrub when the bird was away. There were three little ones hidden among the foliage. I didn't see the nest, the little birds were just perched on branches. I quickly took these photos, made a short video, and left them alone. I hope they would grow up alright and fly away.

  5. Great stuff! It's nice to see how active the little guy is. Very concerned with cleanliness too, it seems.
