Dark-necked Tailorbird (Orthotomus atrogularis atrogularis)

posted in: Morphology-Develop. | 0

It was interesting to note that this forest location has 3 different species of Tailorbirds – the Dark-necked, Ashy and Rufous-tailed.

Some views of an adult male Dark-necked Tailorbird, possibly in breeding plumage in view of the extensive dark neck. Was foraging for insect and invertebrate prey and possibly nesting from the behaviour.
