Small Minivet (male)

The Small Minivet is a small passerine bird found in tropical southern Asia from the Indian subcontinent east to Indonesia. It is a widespread and common resident breeding bird in thorn jungle and scrub.

This minivet is 16 cm long with a strong dark beak and long wings. The male differs from most other common minivets by having grey, not glossy black, upperparts and head, and orange underparts, fading to yellow on the belly, orange tail edges, rump and wing patches (as in this image).

The female is grey above, with yellow underparts (including the face), tail edges, rump and wing patches.

They catch insects in trees by fly catching or while perched. The Small Minivet will form small flocks. They are often a part of the mix hunting parties.
