before ten days i got a call from my mother in law telling me about a bird that comes to stand on her living room window.

asked her to describe it, she only said it got red eye, and it comes at about 2 -2:30 pm.

went to her on my weekend (on Friday) and was so STUNNED to find out that her bird is a Menetries's Warbler.

it continued to come all past week also at the same time, as it dry it self on her window, so form yesterday i got a video that i uploaded on BF TV.

this shot is form last week, Hope you like it.

He is more punctual than many human beings, Doux.
Lucky you to have a smart mother-in-law!
(Mine is 95 years old, living on10+ floor in a mansion in Hong Kong, so no Trees or birds outside, and even there is, it should be too much for her old eyes, LOL.)
Great shot, and the window looks no harm done to the image.

The look through the window delievers an amazing result. The eye focus/reflection as well. Great call from your MIL, lovely bird.
