Hunted Another Bird Down

I am fast becoming a serial stalker, watching and learning the patterns, of the birds I want to photograph. I finally caught up with this little bird that fed on bugs in my neighbor's curry leave and guava trees.
The bird is a tailor bird, which is hard to find and photograph as the bird blends so well among the green leaves and it is constantly on the move.I finally managed to photograph the tailor bird from my bathroom window as while it hunted for bugs on the guava tree. There were a pair feeding but one stayed well hidden amongst the curry leaves. The hot weather has created a great breeding season and many birds are breeding now. I am pretty sure that the pair have a nest in the mango tree together with the scarlet flower pecker couples.
