Common Iora (Aegithina tiphia) - Kunyit Kacat (Malay)
I saw a small family of the Common Iora while photographing orchids at the Taman Orkid or Orchid Park near Kuching on the 9th of August. It was the first time I ever had of coming very close to the bird. The little chick was preening itself and both of its parents were nearby for company. They were not so frightened to see me and upon being alerted of my presence did not move far away from the spot. Instead they move to immediate twigs and branches offering me even better light and location for creative shots. I share here the shots I managed to capture of these tiny but active birds.
