Up-close and personal with the tailor

Perenjak Kelapu (Malay) or Red-headed Tailorbird.

 The Red-headed Tailorbird is a super active tiny creature.  It likes to hop from branch to branch in swift movements and thus very difficult to take a picture .  However today I was a bit fortunate because a pair of these vocal birds were too busy foraging for insects that they forget my presence just yards away from them.  These birds are among the tiniest birds in the park, approximately 4 inches long.
