Tailorbird nest spotted

Tailorbird is the common scene in my garden that small insectivorous bird with greenish body ,rust colored forehead and crown.Its chirp is sweet to ears ,frolicking around within leaves and hedge of garden is a watchable affair .

I have never known about its nest until spotted in my garden on Asoca tree .I was amazed with how a bird uses leaves to make nest by weaving leaves .I researched about it and got to know ,The edges of a large leaf are pierced and sewn together with plant fibre or spider silk to make a cradle in which the actual nest is built.


                                                      Leaves are sewed to make nest

On giving a zoom to camera few hatchling were easily spotted 

It uses leaves as a pouch to carry nest safely and thereby protecting its child or hatchlings .It seems to be nesting period for birds as pigeons in my backyard are also making nest on porch .

Happy Gardening
