Wonderful sketch Ayuwat, a very lively and active little bird in a beautifully composed setting. Excellent stuff.

Thank you very much everyone!
Bananafishbones> Sorry to hear that you didn't see the pitta... It helps a lot if you can recognise the call.
Sometimes they can be responsive to playback as well.

Great little sketch, there's real life in the bird's eye and the way its head has the slight tilt.

As usual Tim beat me to it with the relevant quote. The composition really adds to the sketch.
