Tailoring the Greenery

IMG_8978_Processed

Common Tailorbirds (Orthotomus sutorius) are one of the many species found along the Green Corridor, the path along which the old railway line used to run and now is a lovely stretch of greenery slicing open the heart of Singapore’s wildlife. My trip there some weeks back was graced with the presence of a Common Birdwing, Singapore’s only CITES (Convention for International Trade in Endangered Species) listed animal and a species found in the Singapore Red Book, which (predictably) didn’t pause for a single moment in its relentless pursuit for… something. This tailorbird, however, served as a consolation prize, and who could resist it hopping around inside the undergrowth?
