Common Tailorbird

Orthotomus sutorius


The common tailorbird is a songbird found across tropical asia, depicted by Rudyard Kipling in his Jungle Book as the bird Darzee, it is a common bird though hard to spot and very shy since it has a very loud call that will make it revealed for anyone nearby, as with my own experience with this bird.


Close to small patches of jungle, generally urban.
