Common Tailorbirds

A pair of common Tailorbirds resting under a large leaf

Right since I started looking closely at the birds around our house, I noticed that a couple of Tailorbirds have been visiting our neighbor's garden very frequently. Although I'm not sure why this beauty falls under the common birds category. As do the other birds, Tailorbirds too have a specific time for visit in the morning and in the evening just before the sunset. These tiny birds, mainly feed on insects.

Taiorbirds have bright green upper body and white underparts. I've noticed them easily sit on the most thinnest of the branches very easily. Well they can comfortably do that since they weigh approximately 8-10 grams.

Tailorbirds build their nests by sewing leaves together to form a deep cup like shape with a very small opening. These tiny birds have a beautiful voice and they do make my morning beautiful by singing their amazing songs almost everyday.

    1. I was lucky to get the first one. Only one of the two birds stayed there for about 4-5 minutes and the other one flew away quickly :-) Thanks.

  6. I didn't realize that you've become a very professional bird photographer. These photos are excellent. And you do have a variety of avians to capture with your camera.
