Little birds

Found this beautiful bird foraging in the grounds behind our office one Sunday afternoon. Could it be a wren or prinia?

Greenish on the back and a bit of a rust on the head. I think it could be a tailor bird. Not very sure, though

The Indian Robin has been a frequent visitor and is definitely blessed with an inquiring personality 

The ashy wren - warbler. Flick, flick goes the tail. Fickle minded sure, but it has got one of the sweetest songs when it really wants to be heard :))

There are other birds too that I have noticed but could not catch on camera yet. It is really astonishing, this wide variety of small birds right in the middle of Faridabad and one can only hope that they continue to thrive and remind us of the infinite, beautiful and bountiful Nature we are all part of


  1. Usually an up-turned tail (the foraging bird in the first two photos) is indicative of a wren. Have you found out what kind of bird it is?
    Love the variety of birds in your area!

  2. Thank you Rita, and I have a few more on camera now, will be posting their pictures too. The little bird you mention could be a wren, but I have not been able to identify it yet.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments!
