Chubby grey bird with a long beak.

7 posts in this topic

Hello! Does anyone know what bird this is? It's small (not longer than the size of a lady's palm), grey, rather chubby and has a long beak. Found it perched under a leaf of my papaya plant recently. It was very still all the time while my kids and I were observing it and taking pictures. Thanks very much for your help in identifying it!

Welcome to Whatbird. Looks like maybe a species of Tailorbird. Location would help.

Another Welcome to Whatbird... and yes, location and date of photo is a strong aid to bird identification.

I was just assuming this was taken in North America... lol. I'm also thinking a species of Tailorbird, but location would be very helpful.
