Long Tailed Minivet
In this blog post, I will be Post some information about the bird called Long Tailed Minivet. I have spotted them and photographed in a forest near my home.
I go for bird photography everyday in the morning. My visits are nearby Forest, river side and other areas under the foothills.
Our area abuts the Shiwalik hills. As it happens, when the winters become too harsh, many birds descend to the adjacent areas to escape the winter and food shortages.
In the forest near my home, many such birds come in the winter. One of these is a beautiful bird called Long Tailed Minivet.
Long Tailed Minivet is a small bird. The males are red and black and females are grey yellow. They are found in South and Southeast Asia. They feed on very small insects living on the leaves of trees. You can judge from their typical short calls their presence. They come in a flock of 5 to 6.
I have observed that there is a single male among the 4 to 5 females. It is very difficult to take their good picture. They don’t stay at any position more than 15 seconds. Secondly they try to stay among the shadows of sense trees.
i waw lucky to take some good pictures which I am posting here. Hope you will like them.
