CommonTailor Bird

Common Tailorbird
(Orthotomus sutorius)
Long-tailed Tailorbird,
Laki Padi/Perenjak Pisang

I watch this small bird (13 cm), singing a monotonous loud -chip, chip sound for over 15 minutes this evening. Leaping around as if searching for a mate. Maybe this is a male with breading plumage.

(Male has long central tail feathers in the breeding season).
