A tiny Golden Jackpot!

Sometimes a small success at home is as satisfying as getting a rare bird far away.

On our terrace, the Red-whiskered Bulbuls (or as I call them, the Bulbullies) always chase away other birds which come to drink water or bathe , and I have been lying patiently in wait (when I get a little breather from the Endless Dishes in the Sink) in the hopes of getting Purple-rumped Sunbirds, Tailorbirds, a solitary Jungle Myna , and several of these delightful Oriental White-eyes.

Today I managed to click at exactly the right time! Certainly, before the lockdown, I didn't know that I could find these birds in the middle of Jayanagar 4th T Block.
