Backyard Birds - Common Tailorbird

327 - Common Tailorbird (Orthotomus sutorius)
There's a family of tailorbirds that have nested in our backyard this year. After several months they seem to be warming up to my presence. They no longer are on edge even when they spot me watching them.

Uploading old pics

Found these pictures while cleaning my old hard disk, that I hadn't uploaded on the blog.

16. Southern Hill Myna (Gracula indica)
Clicked this on a trek through the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary in Thekkady.

217. Japanese White-eye (Zosterops japonicus)
On my 2013 visit to Kamakura Japan

229. American Tree Sparrow - Non-breeding plumage (Spizelloides arborea)
This ID is a little doubtful. Spotted in Seattle.
