This tiny bird can always be missed and if not careful you wouldn’t even see it until its call gives away its location; but then again, it is difficult to follow within the viewfinder since it is always mobile. I have seen and observed Tailorbirds in different places but this one amused me since it had a ball of spiderweb on its beak, I never knew what it was doing about it. I thought that this bird had itself tangled or trapped in a ball of spiderwed and that it was trying to get rid of it. Little did I realized that it was actually gathering the web as a material for building a nest.
A lot of birds in the wild make use of the ready-to-use natural adhesives like mud, bird saliva, spiderweb, and many more. It is just amazing to watch them in the wild being practical and actually intellectual in construction and problem solving. This time, I never believed in using longer lenses in taking bird photographs, I was contented of my Fujinon XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS until then I craved for more details and vivid photographs as I take the birds home in a form of a jpeg file in my SD Cards. I have learned so much from this bird and it was another joy in birding.
