The Asian Brown Flycatcher (Muscicapa griseisticta) 15 cm

One of the smallest bird and well liked by most birder watchers and photographers, due in part to it's cute and affable looking features. One of this bird's favorite feeding 'style' is to select a perch on a solitary branch in an open area or a bare branch in a tree. From this perch it would have a clear view of the surroundings and make frequent 'sorties' to catch flying insects. It could base itself on such a perch for hours.     

Frequently found in open forest, parks, gardens and mangrove up to 1580 meters above sea level.

Some photos, taken with it's favorite perch below.
