This chap, perched on the upper branches of the tree, had the most mournful of all faces.
There is a charm in observing their faces from up-close. Probably because these birds are rarely observed from that close.
The darkness on the ‘cheeks’ seems to add this expressional detail.
Which, in this case, seems to suggest one very, very glum Baya Weaver 🙂
For the record, the fellow featured here is a male of burmanicus race, with the distinctive bright yellow crown.
