This 13-cm trilling bird is found only in Central Visayas, Philippnes: Panay, Negros, and Cebu islands. It has a reddish-brown cap, beige throat and body, brown wings, and an erect, long tail when folded.
Some painting tips:
-If the fan fabric is loose or transparent, use a clear ground and dry for a day before painting.
-Use metallic textile paints for the birds.
-Use silver poster color for the white magnolia flowers.
-Use Chinese ink for the magnolia branches.
