sparrows and chicadees have heavier beaks.
The beak looks kind of wren like. Don't know.

Yes Koomori and Jay, more like a wren but as I Google search for Indian wren, this bird is nowhere there so may be some other name they have but definitely resembling with wren. Actually earlier when we saw them flying open in our yard of previous home, we thought it is a humming bird by its flying pattern, but when got settled it wasn't a humming bird so I said it resembles somewhat with that but yes of course have a shorter beak and not at all a humming bird or sparrow. But they are cute, don't know if horrible really!!!

1)when you go to a vet, tell him/her that the bird is ALWAYS your pet, (unless you know the vet and know they will not euthanize) 2)You STAY with the bird, even while they are taking samples for tests or whatever 3) You NEVER walk away and leave the bird with vet. Else... they may just Euthanize it.

Oh oh oh oh! I found something!

Common Birds of India

I'm thinking it is a type of sunbird? They have the same wren-like beak and fit the description well enough. Also don't forget, birds are migrating too, so this bird may not be a year-round bird where you live. I am by no means any expert on the migration patterns of Indian birds but maybe that could explain it.

I hope this helps!

Yes the link is great!! But beak of sun bird is slightly curved while this is with a straight long beak
I don't know if they migrate but I remember I would see him daily in front of mirror in my previous home chirping loudly,they had nest there in our garden. And sometimes when I woke up late, I couldn't see him and missed him but he /she would come daily.

Edit:

Reading more about sun bird, it is really quite resembling with sun bird, just a little confused with beak. I will watch their beak closely next time when I see him and let you know. Thank you. I downloaded a similar pic of sun bird, attaching here. Just a little confusion in beak.
Think I can research on it, lol

I can't leave my peanut jar for one minute outside or little thieves will pilfer from it, like this gray catbird. Try them. They work well.




Jay, constantly forgetting to post, this is a cute cat bird, never saw this bird here? Sneaky on peanuts. Loved the shot.

Kiddy, I'm so glad we're making headway on your bird. Let me know if you discover it, will you? I'll continue to help you identify it if you want to post any additional photos you may capture or any observations here. This is pretty fun! I'm vicariously birdwatching in India! I love it!! (so excites)

I'm still wondering what kind of pigeon my mystery pigeon is. LOL I won't post the photo here directly because it's a captive bird, not a feeder bird. Technically. But it's not a wild bird so it won't count in this thread, lol.

Anyway, I've uploaded more pictures to my albums with plans to upload more tonight. I'm heading out for my eagle watch in a few moments here so hopefully I'll update the birdwatching album too.

May I suggest a Feeder Watch Theme before I go?

How about "Moulting Birds"... lol. I keep finding half naked birds in my feeder.

House Wren

Have you guys seen any moulting birds or is it different where you live?

Ah! Carolina wren, and one of my favorites. I had a little male coming to eat meal worms out of my hand, a few years ago. He and his mate would bring their babies for meal worms and chopped peanuts. He looked worse than that by the end of summer. Very cute little birds with personality. I just love them.

Yes sure, will tell you if I discover and post the pics if I get a chance to take them. I see many beautiful bird around and were in previous home, will try to clicks pics for you for sure as soon as I buy a camera, no idea about which camera to buy for this purpose which is a cheaper one too.
I have already saved your mystery pigeons pic from other thread to see if someone can tell about his breed
I didn't note a molting bird yet except for my molting pigeons , will try to look for.
That's cute
