The Baya Weaver (Ploceus philippinus) is a weaver found across South and Southeast Asia. They inhabit grassland, cultivated areas, scrub and secondary growths usually near fresh or brackish water. They are widespread and common within their distribution area but are prone to local, seasonal movement.[2]

Despite their species name, they are not found in the Philippines. Three geographical races are recognized. The race philippinus is found through much of mainland India. The race burmanicus is found eastwards into Southeast Asia. A third race, travancoreensis is darker above and found in southwest India.[3]
These are sparrow sized (15 cm) and in their non-breeding plumage, both males and females resemble female house sparrows. They have a stout conical bill and a short square tail. Non-breeding males and females look alike, dark brown streaked fulvous buff above, plain (unstreaked) whitish fulvous below, eyebrows long buffy, bill is horn coloured and no mask. Breeding males have a bright yellow crown, dark brown mask, blackish brown bill, upper parts are dark brown streaked with yellow, with a yellow breast and cream buff below.[4]

Hello Zahoor,
Nice pose, also color contrast nicely. This bird is really an acrobat. It would be interesting to know the size of the plant it sits on.
