Birds in Neighbourhood - 21

I get to see variety of birds in the back yard of my parents house in Udupi. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is Common Tailorbird



They have greenish upper body plumage and rust colored forehead and crown. They are unique because of their long upright tail. 



They get their name from the way their nest is built where the edges of a large leaf are pierced and sewn together with plant fiber or spider silk in the form of cradle.

Isn't that an amazing fact that they stitch their nests. A sweet little bird, he is loving that pretty flowering tree.
