the keen watch

this bird was perched amongst the lush green leaves of a joy perfume (leihao, in Manipuri) tree. iwith its rather sharp gaze, i imagine that it probably thinks itself to be the guardian of the tree.

taken in Chandigarh. would anyone help me identify this bird?

A sleepy honey bird oriental white eye

caught this cute fella catching a mid-morning nap. by all presumption it might have been forced to get up real early to get its share of early morning snack but by eight in the morning it was happily dozing with its back to the sun. photograph taken in the front garden of my house in Manipur.
