Golden-headed Cisticola (Cisticola exilis)

By wildlifephotographer
The Golden-headed Cisticola (Cisticola exilis) also known as the Bright-headed Cisticola, is a species of warbler found from India to Australia.
It is very similar in appearance to the Zitting Cisticola however, in the breeding season males acquire a breeding plumage in which their head, throat and breast are a bright golden-orange colour, and their tails become shorter than in winter-plumage.
The species is found in rank vegetation in and around wetlands.
It is known as the finest tailor of the birds, often using stolen spiders' threads to stitch together its nest

A typical Warbler pose, though ours are not quite as well coloured
