I will never ever become a famous bird photographer (not that it was ever a career goal anyway). I just couldn't adjust the apeture and focus fast enough to get good snapshots of the birds in the zoo's avairy. The vast majority of photos got sent to the deleted items folder; this was one of the better ones and I think it's terrible compared to the ones I've taken of the birds that come to my small garden.
This is a Red-billed Leiothrix, also known as a Pekin Robin or a Pekin Nightingale. Those two last names are misnomers as they are not related to either Old World robins or nightingales. They are a common bird found throughout Southeast Asia and China.
