A small insectivorous Asian songbird with greenish back and yellow underparts.
- Genus Aegithina, family Irenidae (or Chloropseidae): four species.
- Naturally, birds like the common iora, a small and lively city bird, are on their way out. I used to spot the bird on most of my visits to Lalbagh in the early 80s.
- The common iora ranges in length from 5.5 to 6 inches (13 to 17 centimeters), and has a weight that averages about a 0.5 ounces (13.5 grams).
Of obscure origin.
